Nature's Brickwork

I was browsing through my old photographs, and found 2 shots taken at 2 different places resembling a similar act of nature.

The following photograph was taken at the Tikona [तिकोणा in the local language] fort in Pune in the winter of 2006. It shows how a fig has grown and has got its hold on a bastion of the old fort using the gaps between the stone bricks. This tree must have become very big now I guess :) Happy me if true.

A fig has rooted and has taken a good hold over a bastion of a very old fort. This photograph was taken in the winter of 2006 at Tikona fort in Pune.

The following photograph was taken in the Parshuram Temple in Konkan in the beginning of the monsoon of 2006. The algae has taken over the filling between the bricks.

Beautiful green algae on the fillings of the brickwork. This photograph was taken in the early monsoon of 2006 in the Parshuram temple in Konkan.

If we still give a chance, nature can take over everything we have artificially produced; everything will be forestified — Earth will be beautiful again.

  10. Yes, why do people try to STOP nature and keep it back? Why not integrate the natural world with our puny structures instead??? It would be lovelier and would help spread a feeling of peace and wellness in the world, to try to live in a more integrated way with nature. And I am glad that nature, in the end, will always win and return things to their natural, beautiful state...

    I love your photographs and wish you could have them made into a book. It would bring peace and joy to all who looked through its pages.
