A New Life!

Photographer's Statement:

This photo really speaks to me because it shows that the mushroom is connected to the tree. It really tells me that there are separate meanings to life than just the one. There can be hard times (the mushroom) but it all will turn out great. It tells about the freedom of life and the hardships. Trees provide so much for us and we need to appreciate them more.
