    The way the tree is leaning toward the house is evocative. Is it ready to knock on the door? Offering protection? Threatening to fall on the roof? There could be a lot of stories with this one!

      The black and white look of the photo can also appear ominous! I’d like to think it is leaning in a protective manner and yet, under a powerful storm, the tree could wreck havoc upon the house. Certainly a thought-provoking photo!

        The building looks strong enough and will probably withstand a storm and a fallen tree if it does. Sorry for choosing a black and white image, but I thought a monochrome image would be more reasonable in this case.

      Thank you very much. The building looks quite old and there are probably some stories about this building and who lived there. But I don’t know the owner of this mansion and I don’t know anything. Sorry.

      Thank you very much. Luckily, this building is in Brookline, not Salem, where ghosts are a common thing.

      Thanks a lot. When I compared a black and white image with a color one, I definitely chose the black and white version. The color image turned out well, but the black and white version has its own special mood.

      Thank you very much Marc. I intentionally chose the black and white version to create that atmosphere.

    Inspired by the photo, I wrote a poem about the tree, it’s simple but I hope you like it.
    I stand tall, outside your door.
    I lean a little to the left, as though I am protecting you.
    My feet though, I assure you, are firmly rooted.
    I am stripped bare.
    There is nothing to see here.
    Not yet anyway, but soon I will be adorned.
    Through spring and summer I will grow.
    Once more from head to toe I will glow.
    People will marvel at my wondrous sight.
    I am over one hundred years old
    Like an old man or woman of my age, my bloom is white.
    I give food to the many birds around as my fruit falls to the ground.
    I supply the air you breathe through the changing of my leaves.
    I am the gift of life.

      Thank you very much for mentioning the name of this artist. Because of this, I again went to see his paintings. And I think they are joyful than this photo.
