Defy the concrete


Sometimes, every view that glances your eyes when you step outside is a scene from a constant battle between Human and Nature.

    1. I agree with you and am happy about it. What you said reminds me of each time I saw a dandelion sprout from the middle of the sidewalk or those fabulous pictures of abandoned houses the nature is completely engulfing to reclaim.

About Me
