tree roots, Changuu (Prison) Island

Zanzibar, Tanzania, 1995

Categories: plants, trees

For me, this picture symbolizes the idea that African roots run deep. Once you live there, you cannot forget your memories and responsibility to your friends and family there. You know that one day you will return. (Changuu Island used to be a prison; now it is inhabited by snorkelling tourists and giant tortoises.)
