Coupe more... for this first one, I had the 70-200 out with about 38mm worth of extension tubes on to see what I could get. I kinda liked this. Life finds a way to emerge through the cracks in the bricks.

And I took my Nifty Fifty out to a local park. I had 12mm extension tube handy to get some close-ups. On my way out, I came across this bit of nature on a man-made object.

I may be fascinated with volcanoes, but the name's Lisa.

You are so right. I see many examples every day. The ones in the old sidewalk in front of our house, I try to keep up with removing, but . . .

Something similar: "native plants" in a lawn of artificial turf. The lawn looks more artificial in real life than in these shots.

Sometimes Urban examples of nature are not alive.

Urban nature can also be something as simple as these "Parklets" bringing a little nature back to urban parking spaces.

A boat hull with dune grass and places to sit.

Another Parklet.

Some Parklets have bigger Uban Nature aspirations...

This is Deepistan National Parklet which not only includes several parking spaces, but also the driveway to the garage to form a little bit of urban nature.

A parklet in front of a school provides a little nature along with lessons about watering plants.

This is a shot I've been thinking about all week. Well, sort of. I wanted a tree, middle of the road, traffic left and right. Plan was to have a slow shutter speed so as to capture the movement of the traffic with the tree just standing there. Unfortunately I couldn't find any such location with a single tree in the middle of any road. So I gave up. But then today I went out at the end of the day and experimented here and there and with traffic etc. Most was rubbish, but I kinda like this one, shot against a low sun. I boosted the greens a bit. All the other colours are untouched. I just wish there'd been more traffic.

Great concept! I like the photo very much, it really shows a crazy urban life, and I like the watermark too.

Thanks very much, InPhoto. I'm glad you said that because "crazy urban life" is exactly what I was after. I only wish I could have found a much better spot with lots more traffic.
