Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Trees

This picture was taken in Central Park, right outside of Strawberry Fields, the tribute to John Lennon. It is one of my favorite parts of the park. While this photo is much more impressive in color, it still brings back fond memories even in black and white.

It’s difficult to accurately describe the emotions evoked when visiting the 9/11 Memorial in New York City. It’s as if the rest of the world falls away and you are caught in this alternate universe. The two times I visited, it was not complete but moving and inspiring all the same. The Survivor Treeย is a powerful reminder that we are capable of surviving more than we think we possibly can.

I found it interesting how much the tone of my last photo changed when seen in black and white. The original picture was taken on an amazing day in May when the sun was shining and the sky was blue and clear. I don’tย  get that feeling looking at this picture!
