Sometimes we find natural settings providing some symbolisms or meanings about human life. A hole or an opening could mean an opportunity or a challenge, among others. I found this unusual scene while walking in a temple complex up in a mountain in Kyoto and converted it into black and white in post. I thought that that tree protruding from that hole in the woods, its top shaped like a strawberry or flower bud and standing out from the rest of its wooden brethren, deserved its picture to be taken. As in life, a person taking on an opportunity deserves to be considered.
