Black & White photograph of a Baobab Tree in an African Village in Tanzania.

The Baobab Tree Landmark in the Village: This tree is located in the center of of an Tanzanian East African village. The locals usually walk by foot or bike and use this tree as a landmark for visitors and for meeting points. I passed by this tree everyday on my way in to work as a volunteer English teacher. It's beauty and uniqueness captivated me every time I saw it. The picturesque background of the unmistakable escarpment, scattered clouds and low wild bushes finished the dressing of this photo.
