Every week we select a new theme, and then go out and shoot that theme. This week the theme is Urban Nature. As always be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme, creativity is what we're looking for.


Let's see some Urban Nature!

Here are the rules:
1. Shots need to be taken between Monday Sunset and the following Monday by Sunset (Whenever that is for you ). Because this activity is supposed to encourage us to get out and shoot, please don't post old shots from your archives. Snapshots and art are equally welcome -- just get out & shoot, and then share!
2. Post your shots at any time during the week.
3. Post a maximum of two shots if you're uploading them to POTN (i.e., attaching them). You can post more than two if you're linking to shots that are not hosted by POTN (i.e. embedding them) but keep within POTN rules. Also keep within POTN rules about size. A copy of the size rules can be found here: IMAGE POSTING RULES
That's it! Have fun! As always be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme, creativity is what we're looking for.
An index to previous weeks can be found here: POTN WORLDWIDE PHOTO WEEK INDEX

That's it!
Have fun!

Yes, malls do seem to spread into an area. They blossom and put down roots. Perhaps not what you meant, though?

Most of the frame is artifice, but that's a cool composition.

I hope people who live amid rural nature will show us some of theirs, too.

Below is a fallen sprig of loquat leaves. When I find these on the ground, I know a fox squirrel is making a nest in the loquat tree. Squirrels are better at chewing off bunches of leaves than at holding onto the bunches all the way to the building site.

I've now restored the unmigrated photos (:-x) up through October 2016. Still going, in small batches.

Returning to the backyard: eggs of torpedo bug, Siphanta acuta, on Cape honeysuckle, Tecoma capensis.

It is the nature of urban dwellers to hold and enjoy festivals such as the one I attended yesterday.

There were free rides for the kids.

And for kids of all ages it was a time to enjoy each other.

I would love to do whatever that girl in Pic 2 is doing. Seems like a lot of fun.

Here is what I got, an osprey nest in the center of town.

I'm looking for suggestions for the coming week...
If I don't get any, I'll still find something, but sometimes y'all have some great ideas!  :p

A material can be a topic, like stone or plastic or fiber.

Meanwhile, more urban nature, in which the "nature" may not be very natural. I think most of the vegetation there was planted. But the sunlight is natural for sure.

Lots of green in the yard but the green on the geranium in the chair is kind of sparse.

A Tree Grows In Marion, NC but why in the alley way? Perhaps a beautification effort?

I was on a short holiday and didn't take my laptop. I'll post some shots tomorrow.
