We all grow in our separate ways

Photographer's Statement:

I Connect to tree’s because they still look 
beautiful after all the bad weather that they 
have been through.I think that this shows us that 
we can do anything as long as we are strong and 
never give up. Tree’s make us healthier because they provide 
bigger chances of better sleep, they can also help us when we 
are sick.They can also grow things that we can use to our
 benefit. We can help protect trees by collecting all the 
litter around them and making
 sure that that don’t get damaged.
