POTD: The Leaning Tree

The Leaning Tree
Nanjing, China
2018

I wonder if the support frame for this tree, presumably put there to keep it from falling over, was put up before or after it was leaning this far. If it was the former, then it didn’t do it’s job. If it was the later, I fear it was a wasted effort. Still, I appreciate the artistic statement it makes.
