Mommy/Fig tree

I had not seen my mother for a while. I was visiting and had my camera with me while she was collecting figs; I used to climb this tree when I was little. I felt that the tree had suddenly grown so big, too big, and my mother’s face as I used to remember it, was lost in those years, in those leaves.
