ISSUE 020-07:




For years I have been taking photographs of places in town where plants more or less wildly grew. I'd like to present you some of these pictures.

A plant crept upwards on a pylon.

A plant crept upwards on front of a house which is at a quite central square of town.

An area of ruins was gradually being overgrown by thicket.

Detail of the above picture.


In the picture you see a kind of reception camp for homeless people which was in a suburb. Please compare this picture with the next one.

In this picture you see how the area looked three years after the demolition of the camp.

Plants colonialized a little house at a terminal loop. Grass grew in a gutter. A creeper twined below the gutter. A tree grew on the stair.
(My wife Christine helped me to translate the text. Thanks.)
