Great shots. I took a closer look and my imagination took hold of me. I could see the ivy slowly continue its creeping up the steps. The growth in the cracks look like ferns.
Congratulation to your little girl.
Go play in the cementry some more and take more pictures as I enjoyed those. Who are the writers? Peace

Michael: Cool pictures of the climbing vine, they do go where they wish.

I can just see you riding around in your cruiser, stopping to get pics. You seem to have a lot of photo ops.
Great pics, as usual!

Reader Wil said...

I like the photos of the gate by the cemetry. The second one and the first one are my favourites. How clever of your daughter to win a contest!. Thanks for your visit! Have a nice day!

Becky and Gary said...

Very nice photos of the foilage in the bricks which do look very old.

I like the dedication of your blog to your state's wildlife. I did the same with mine - and we need more of that. People have forgotten, what beauty their surroundings hold.
So a reminder sure is a good thing!
Cheers, Klaus

Dear Michael,

Thank you for your kind comment on my “orange” blog.

I wasn’t aware of this new photo meme “Scenic Sunday”.

Your photos for this week are really interesting. I like very much the idea of "going in opposite directions" visible your photos, the contrast between the plant slowly climbing and covering the wall and the firestairs going down from the top of the building.

Have a nice week,

Best regards,

Very nice. I like the brick buildings!

Strider said...

Interesting close-ups of the plants on the brick wall. Nice Job!

The Birdlady said...

I am fascinated by fire escapes - who knows why...You see lots of photo-ops, and that's a very good thing for a photographer!

Andrea said...

Interesting how the plant is coming out of the brick work. Great capture.

We just got 1 1/10th inches of rain and looks like more is on the way. Here in Georgia we need all the rain we can get.

For The People said...

Thank you all for the great comments. Ms B, I have a cousin that invented a portable fire escape!

Hi Michael, I added you to my blog the Holley Herald. Thanks so much for the comments and you really surprised me by joining Scenic Sunday. I never thought I could get someone to join. I'm happy to see these really good shots. I really like them.

I love plants growing in cracks in old walls. There is such beauty in simple things.

when foliage starts to poke out of a wall, that means no one cares, or somebody is being kind to nature

Alex said...

Thanks for stopping by to see the zoo pics. I posted some new photos from this morning. Stop by and let me know what you think.

I plan to continue to stop by your site and have marked you as a favorite under "Art that Inspires Me". Your work is moving.

LisaK said...

I really enjoy your photography. I like what you see.

Ellyn said...

Your photography is beautiful. I loved the wrought (I think that is how you spell...not sure though) is so pretty.
Also your sky watch is so bright. I loved it.
Thanks for stopping by my site.

Lyn said...

wonderful photos! seems like you have having a blast with your new hobby :)

michele said...

I agree with your "commentors." And you "move" and "inspire" me every day of my life. Love the cemetary gates!

Excellent post..
Those bricks look very old. In fact they seem to all be hand made but the look of them.. can you imagine all the working hours that would take to make a build as big as this one..

Thank you for you kind comments and messages.. I rteall do appreciate all you have said and wrote.. Thank you.

I'm pleased also you like the new Sky Watch blog.. and look forward to seeing you there.

All the best and 'Kepp Safe'
