Never Lonely

This spot is along the waterfront in the city of Barrie, and I drive by it frequently. I’ve seen this tree a thousand times, but the story isn’t about the tree; it’s about the man sitting silently underneath.

I thought the high-contrast and surreal effect of infrared would work well here, and I hope I made the right choice! The leaves on the tree hadn’t fully grown when I made this shot, and I might gop back and see what’s happening with this tree now that summer is in full swing.

Just a fun example of something you see so often that you never think it’s worth photographing, until it is.
