"Trees are poems the earth writes upon the sky, We fell them down and turn them into paper. That we may record our emptiness” ~ Kahlil Gibran, Lebanese-American artist, poet, and writer 1883 to 1931.
A re-visit to Pasir Penambang. the small seafood and fishing town off Kuala Selangor, brought a smile to my face. Happy to see the old tree in the middle of the road still standing and alive. In a society with scant regard for conservation and preservation of nature and old things, it was surprising to see the tree still in the middle of the road spared - four years on.
I last photographed it in 2013 and titled it King Of The Road - Small Town. Big Tree. Instead of using sepia, I used Nik Collection's Color Efex Pro 4 Bi-Colour Filter for the current image It is similar to bi-color Cokin filters of old days.
Although published in my old blog and on Instagram, I made the mistake of not tagging it adequately. Finding the previous image was tough and it took a while.
