The Wall Garden

The Wall Garden

This image is an example of why the camera doesn't really matter. I captured this image on one of my many trips to Shanghai, when I was only carrying a little point and shoot. Exploring a little alley, I came across this wall with great texture. As I followed it down the alley I saw that some of the plaster covering the underlying brick had crumbled away. Weeds had infiltrated the brick creating something that reminded me of a wall garden. Despite paint and probable cleaning, the dirt and grit of Shanghai is clearly visible, and helps make the vegetation look even more vulnerable.
