The Fig Tree (10 pics S5, F30)

This is a personal thing that I have a special affection for this fig tree. But this tree is not only a symbol of an old school in HK, it's also a shelter under which I spent 7 whole years of my youth – probably the most joyous and worriless period in my life... Just as I was contemplating and admiring this old tree, a passerby who obviously knew nothing about a fig tree awakened me, "What the hell are these ugly things? Is the tree sick?"

Hope you enjoy, and as always, comments and advice will be much appreciated.

Best regards
