"...good and bad thigns or making wishes..."
You might be right about the wishes ;)
I think in the photo is a boy. He hangs the textile pieces on the tree. Certainly, I think that hanging out of them he concieves the desires.
It's my own opinion. I don't like to believe in good and bad signs or do wishes by rituals or other acts. I only believe in God.
Thank you for your corrections.

Very good. And you are right in what you think is going on in the picture, in a way. The place is called Devil's Tower and it is in the US state of wyoming. Read more here about where this picture is taken and what is going on in the picture:
Nine-year-old Wakinyan Two Bulls places prayer flags in a tree near Mato Tipila ("bear lodge"), or Devils Tower, in Wyoming. The story of the Oglala—their spirituality and their fight to remedy old wrongs—goes well beyond the Pine Ridge Reservation.
Before climbing, the climbers hang prayer flags in the surrounding trees and shrubs around the base of the Tower, its disrespectful to disturb them.
The brightly colored pieces of cloth that you find
hanging in some of the trees along the Tower Trail
and elsewhere in the Monument are referred to as
prayer cloths, prayer bundles, prayer ribbons, prayer
ties, and prayer flags. They are physical, symbolic
representations of prayers and are here by American
Indian people as part of their religious ceremonies.
Please do not touch, take, or disturb these prayer
cloths in any way. It is considered culturally
insensitive to photograph these items and we request
that you do not do so.
The legend of the local Native American tribes says that a group of girls was out playing when they began to be chased by a massive giant bear. The legend says they ran and finally at one point, they knelt down and prayed to the Great Spirit and asked Him to deliver them from the bear. The legend says that as they did that, the ground rose up into the air where they were kneeling and the bear came and grabbed at the sides of the land that was shooting up with his massive claws. The legend says this is what caused the vertical lines in the rocks that surround Devil's Tower. After the ground rose so high that the bear could not reach the girls, he went to another place a little to the south and east of Devil's Tower where he laid down to rest. That area is called the Black Hills and Bear Butte. All of this area is considered sacred to Native Americans. The tower was popularized in a 1977 science fiction movie about aliens coming to visit the earth at the tower called Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
Hello dear Mangomaster!
Many people in the World pray different things, spirits and animails! I am not a supporter of it. I know that God is exists and He wants us to pray only Him, and I have only one God.
