Photo Project Theme Week 5 – Old

This week’s 3P52 theme is entitled “Old”.    Last week,  I had an idea in mind of what I am going to shoot for this theme.  But on Wednesday, I actually came home a little early from work because I was feeling sick.  Today was my first fever-free day since last week.  I had suffered bronchitis and it was tough.  Coughing all day and all night, no sleep, no appetite, headaches, body aches, you name it.  Glad it’s almost over. I still have cough but not at as bad as it was.  So here I am, a few days late with my post.  I had to pull this photo from last year’s shoot in New Braunfels, TX.

This tree is called the Founder’s Oak.  You can find this tree at Landa Park in New Braunfels, TX.  According to this website about Landa Park core samples of this tree taken in 1985 concluded that it sprouted in the year 1700. That means it’s about 312 years old.   How’s that for being old?  As you can see they have built a support beam to support its main trunk.

I hope this tree will last for many more years.

Till next week – I need to start thinking about the next theme!
