Bamboo 1

I chose to place the light at the background of this photo to emphasize the amazing character of this incredible plant.  A regular feature of our tropical rainforests; the bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world and plays innumerable economic and cultural roles especially in Asia where, among other uses, the bamboo is still being used as scaffolding in the construction of high-rise buildings even in ultra-modern cities such as HongKong; is used to entirely compose whole houses; is a favorite food source; and a versatile raw product for construction materials, fishing and aquaculture (rafts, outriggers, floaters), household utensils, and souvenir items. I’d like to think that the light behind the bamboo poles in the photo represents its limitless potentials.
