Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Perspective

My initiatory Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge post takes me back to last summer, when I visited Charleston, South Carolina in the dead of summer.

A short drive out of downtown on the way to Folly Beach, you’ll find (what is suspected to be) the oldest living tree in the U.S., the Angel Oak Tree. The Angel Oak Tree is estimated to be between 400 and 500 years old. Find more facts on the tree here. The visitors, like me, stood back and marveled at the tree before moving in closer between the intertwined branches for a closer inspection.
