A Reflection of Ones True Self

Photographer's Statement:

I believe this photo, although it looks simple, has a deeper meaning than what meets the eye. This photo shows how even though we may think we appear to others in one way, our true selves will always be revealed by those we love most. I also feel that capturing this photo in a public location, although simple at first, can be special. It can truly help people appreciate trees, but only if you know to take a closer look.
