Photographer's Statement:

This year’s theme is healthy tree, healthy me. I was out in my backyard watering this tree, because trees need water to survive. I also need water to survive in my life. Trees grow big and green, it just takes time.  You need to water and take care of them everyday, just how we take care of ourselves, so then we can grow big and get strong.
