Photographer's Statement:

The bark of this tree, looks as if it never held life. But, as we can see, the “Orange Crust Fungus” indicates to us, that this tree is capable of giving. Giving life to a organism that is completely different from the knowledge of trees. It grows plentifully, and truly shows us that we CAN choose our own “tree”, that creates a safe place for us to grow.
