Weed In a Crack


Remember that tennis court I told you about? Well, there were actually two sections to it. One section, the part I took the picture of, was the nicer section, the section where the courts were clean, and you could safely play tennis. The other section however, wasn't so nice. Divided from the nicer one by a large green wall, it was scarred with cracks and looked like someone had actually taken a jackhammer and literally tore the place apart. I'd remembered it being bad when I was little, but not nearly as destroyed as it is today. Anyway, this is where I took this photo. One of the larger cracks had a huge weed growing out of it, and I thought the contrast between the shadows cast by the weed and the tennis court's battered ground was nice.

One of my favorites so far. I love it when life pops through unlikely places - gives me hope.

I adore this photo Arnold. I was just saying, on someone else's blog, that I especially love photos of plants making their way through concrete. Somehow the impossible becomes possible.
