Whiskers and Branches

Photographer's Statement:

Every day that a puppy is born, a tree sprouts. That puppy will grow its whiskers, while the tree grows its branches.

The tree may begin to wither, but the dog will still depend on it. The dog may begin to wither, but the tree will still watch over it with tender eyes.

They grow, live, and die together in sweet harmony.
