The Tree House

“I like the idea of trees as these delicately balanced monstrosities perched over everything.” –Tim (who is found here).

Here are my so-so shots of the Anping Tree House. On the day we went, the three degrees cooler in the shade could be felt beneath the roof which essentially is made up of extended branches and the leaves of the banyan trees.

Shadows on the outside wall.

I suspect once upon a time there was a door here one could actually enter.

The roots dangle down through the empty rooms, forming curtains that caught the waning afternoon light and swayed gently in the breeze.


The steel beams support the tree roof.

The trees trace the angle of the rooftops.

    I love your pictures here! Very interesting Banyan tree overtaking the structure of the house.

    I really like this place. It’s magical, like from a fairytale.

    Great photos.

    Thanks Fili and Dan! I always feel like the photos aren’t quite good enough to catch the actual experience properly when I have to deal with the differing light values of the shade, etc.

    So it’s nice to receive the kind compliments!

    Oh weird– WordPress didn’t know I was logged in… *rushes madly off to check on the drafts that I was just working on…*
