At the root of it all
London, ON, March 2009
So it's a root and not a branch*. They're quite closely related, after all, as one sucks up the water and nutrients that the other needs to grow, while the other absorbs the sunlight and carbon dioxide necessary to drive the photosynthetic process that keeps the whole thing alive. They need each other, so I thought it might be a nice gesture to give the lowly root its due.
That plus I really liked this picture as soon as I saw it on the camera's screen. The colors and textures are especially Zen-like. Sometimes, it really is as simple as looking at something that makes you feel a bit better.
Your turn: Look down. What's there?
