Trees Are Poems The Earth Writes Upon The Sky

"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.
