Coconut Tree

The coconut tree is very important to our daily lives. It provides us so many things including: food, medicine, shelter, woods, drinks, string, firewoods, copra, shells, kaokioki (liquor) and so forth. It’s indeed the first to wave you welcome upon your arrival and the last to wave a farewell as you leave our islands.

It’s the coconut tree nearby one of the homes in Temwaiku. I took the shot right from beneath the tree – trying to keep the fruits in focus. I also wanted the leaves to evenly form an outer circular background. Both blurry and clarity on different parts of the image were achieved using photo software.
