Growing there

Noticed this small fern one day, growing from an old brick wall in Pontchatoula, LA. It just asked for a sepia presentation.

A determined little plant to be growing so high up the wall. A great choice to use sepia, it brings out the tones and textures beautifully.

Wow. Now that is the definition of perseverance! Out of a wall, no less. I have seen this happen in walkways before, but never walls!

I love the determination of this plant. I have a little sidewalk that is now growing snap dragons and blue grass. The determination of these little plants could sure teach us some valuable lessons. Great shot. Hope you enjoy your time away.
