I waited so long for an opportunity to capture this tree and its environment. I must have stayed there taking photos for 45 minutes while school kids and parents were walking by. I took my time and was careful I didn’t accidentally capture any little humans in my photos. One woman approached me, smiled and asked if I was from the news. That felt pretty cool lol. Another woman approached me mid-shot and responded “You like the tree? Me too. It’s beautiful.” I’m glad I didn’t wait any longer. Almost all the leaves were gone just 4 days after I took this picture. I’m glad I immortalized the moment for everyone else to share in. Enjoy.
