The Broccoli Tree: A Parable

I want to share the story below, The Parable of the Broccoli Tree, because I think we can all identify with what happens in this story. Although the main focus of the story is one about photography, it applies to many facets of life and that’s what seems to make the message a universal one.

At one point in my career I was an elementary school principal and one of the favorite books in the school library was Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree. Although one could argue this is a children’s book, it touches a chord in me every time I read it.

As you arrive at the end of the story, realize that this is a dilemma many creatives and especially photographers face. I even see examples of this that are unrelated to photography, but associated with the popularity of a specific features in our national parks.

I hope you find the story meaningful!
