Ailsa’s travel photo challenge: Foliage

Ailsa has posted photos of autumn foliage this week and challenged us to do the same.  Check out her photos:  http://wheresmybackpack.com/2012/09/28/travel-theme-foliage/

I have no idea what season it is in my photo (or rather, my father’s photo), but I’m guessing that in this boy’s part of the world it’s always warm enough to climb a tree.  In bare feet!  The photo suits not so much a foliage theme as a trunk theme.  But if the boy climbs for long enough he’ll get to the foliage and more importantly to the dates.
