Tasks / Disobedient Nature

This task is retired.

Search for, find, document an example of nature refusing to yield to or blending itself into a construction of modern man.

Document with photos when possible.

Examples should document situations where man has put up some restraint for nature and nature has disobeyed. While trees or other permanent plants are preferable, a basic example would be plants that grow in the cracks of the sidewalk.

I have just returned from spending a quantity of time in Harper's Ferry, West Virginia. This town is about an hour outside of Washington, DC, and was founded by Robert Harper in 1751. He had been sent to the Shenandoah Valley in 1747 to erect a Qua...

I've had this one in mind for a while, and kept a look out for examples of nature fighting back, but had been unsuccessful. So on a whim this afternoon walking home, I took a detour and started hunting out examples. Yarmouth has an old Town wall th...

I thought that I would complete this task with a series of shots of plants growing all over buildings, like the example - like most completions. I even had a set of mysterious plant-covered buildings in mind to go and visit this weekend and attempt t...

To call observing the wilds of nature overtaking human construction an obsession of mine would be a serious understatement. Simply sharing my photographs from the past would be a retro-completion and a cheat; my archive of literally hundreds of suc...
