This picture shows a daisy growing from the asphalt near the sewer drain. It ties in to the next picture like with how it starts from the ground than goes up the fence, and also because it seems as if the tiny flower suddenly grew.
I’m not sure what kind of tree this is but it looked really nice in contrast to the bright red fence it was climbing and it broke through from the asphalt with seemingly no problem. The forgotten dog leash was also an interesting detail and was positioned right in the middle which made for a good composition. It came out underexposed so I manipulated the exposure, contrast, perspective and such in Photoshop. The idea is that the right side continues into the next picture where it follows along the shape of the brick fence.
I chose this picture because of the way the plant followed the indents in the bricks and had nice and even leaves which contrasted to the fence. It’s related to the theme because of the way it follows the fence and grows out of it. This one had a subtle HDR technique to it to bring out the textures and colours. It continues into the next picture by growing upwards which eventually reaches the top.
This was taken atop the bridge. I liked how the bright green leaves on a clear blue sky contrasted with the grey stone and how it divided the frame evenly. It’s thematically connected to the project because it adapted to climb to the top of the bridge to get better access to sunlight and water. The moss growing on it also added to the effect and theme of the picture. It had levels adjusted to bring out the texture and colour. It’s connected to the next picture with the idea that the leaves start growing downwards again.
I really like the composition on this one because of the way it evenly frames the path and the trees in the distance which do the same, making it seem like a tunnel created from nature. This one shows how nature is forced to adapt to manmade actions the most because of the way the shrub was cut to allow the path to go through it. I only adjusted the levels a bit on this one. It ties in to the last picture because when following the previous downwards path it leads back to the ground where it all started.
These bright flowers were growing from the asphalt and thorough the wooden fence along with other plants. There were a lot of them so it seems like they adapted quite well to the impractical environment and obstacles in their way. This is the second picture where the HDR technique was applied. It borught out the details of the flowers and the fence behind it.
