This photo was taken at bonelli park in San dimas (awarded tree city USA) (not sure what year) this evening. At a spot where I usually take a break from riding my bike around the park, or just to hang out after a long day. It wasn't until today that I stopped here to play with my kendama. Noticing the tree I decided to climb up the tree and play kendama. And I just felt really happy. Because I was doing two things I love to do. Climb trees and play kendama, the two things that make me feel like I am still a kid. Two very simple yet rewarding acts. So I had the idea to get my friend Michael up there and land a pull spike. I am really happy with the turn out. I know now that I will never stop climbing trees or playing kendama. I will never stop exploring through nature and just being a kid. @arbordayfoundation @homegrownbysweets @sweetskendamas #hgarborday2016 #kendama #tree #josevincentphotography #Nikond3100
Honorable Mentions: @kendama_klaus Klaus really impressed us by actually going out and planting a tree! Way to really participate in the Arbor Day festivities!! Thanks Klaus!
Bob Ross would say: "and here we plant a happy little tree "? so I did! It's a little part of an nearly 1000 year old elmtree which you will find in my hood. I thought it would be a nice thing to give something back. Much love!

@kendagera Gergely's photo was another that stood out for both it's imagery and story. The tree pictured has a lot of history and meaning to his family. Trees can provide so much, not just from their resources like wood and nuts, but from the tradition and history around them that carries from generation to generation. Thanks for sharing, Gergely!
"This is a big, 20 meter high walnut tree behind our house. The tree was planted by my great-great grandfather when he was a child and it has more than 100 years. It is still healthy and gives us countless of nuts every year. This tree is important for my family and for me too. Because of the nut, what gives us health, employes us in those days and of course earns money for my family. It is a calm, beautiful place for me where I can shoot landscape photos of my area but especially I really like to play Kendama underneath. This tree is a part of my history, family and of course a part of me." @sweetskendamas @arbordayfoundation @homegrownbysweets #HGARBORDAY2016 #arborday #sweetskendamas #homegrown #braziliancherry #sweets #walnut #tree #kendama #sunset #nature #clouds #contest #photocontest #love #sharekendamalove #shadowdama #kendamaallday #kendamaeveryday
@loserpieceofshit This one has such a unique perspective it really caught our eye. It's not often that you view roots from beneath them! Beautiful photo!
@bemezii This photo is simply beautiful. It's pretty cool that a tree can produce such amazing flowers. We could look at it over and over again and never get sick of it.
