Look what I found when digging through unpublished images from past Junes – that old tree at the Fort! At the time I didn’t think much of this shot with a simple composition split between the tree and a solitary sailboat on its mooring.

At the time, I was using the tree to help balance the focal point of the sailboat. Now, seven years after the image was taken in June 12, 2013, the view of the Giving Tree with its full canopy steals the eye and is a wonderful reminder of the majesty of this now lost symbol.
