Cling wrapped building
Ivy in Woodfield
London, ON, November 2006 [Embiggen by clicking]
There's something magical about an old brick facade covered by ivy. It has so much more dimension than most other unadorned building surfaces. It invites the eye in for a closer look, almost beckoning passers-by to take a moment and wonder about this curiously symbiotic mixture of architecture and nature.
Which is what I did as I strolled through this historic downtown neighborhood on a quiet weekend afternoon a few months back.
Your turn: What is it about ivy that compels us to look?
