Last week a sprout of grass sticking out of a bricked town square caught my eye, particularly the shadows it made, so I took a picture of it with my iPhone camera. I liked the photo so much that I decided it might make a worthy subject for a real camera outing, so some days later I took a few more photographs. What's really sad is that the sunlight in these photos is from noon. That's how low the sun is in the sky, and how long the shadows are, these days.
Feel free to make your own profound metaphor about Nature resiliently fighting back against human Urban Progress. Or don't. These were all taken in the bricked square around the town church.
