Photographer's Statement:

When you look at this picture, many will just see berries. Although when I see this photo, I see berries, that will be eaten by a bird, who will hatch babies, who will then come back to where these berries are, for new berries that were sprouted. And no matter how many times a new bird comes back, the tree will have grow more berries for the birds. So, when I look at this picture, I see that one thing relies on another, I see New Beginnings.
