Thematic Photographic 251 - Grown

Nature's place of worship
London, ON
November 2012
It's difficult to stand in the middle of a place like this and not feel something in your soul. These trees have been here far longer than we have, and silently give back to the planet in ways drivers rushing by the nearby road would simply never appreciate - if they ever bothered to think about it at all.

I come here as often as I possibly can - but apparently not often enough. It's barely a two-block walk from our house to this ravine, and every time I find myself standing on the hushed forest floor, I wonder why I don't spend more time here.

Good question.

Your turn: Take a photo that suggests this week's "grown" theme - or find one from your archives - and post it to your blog, website, Facebook page, or any related online resource. Leave a comment here letting everyone know where to find it. Visit other participants to spread the photographic fun - and feel free to post additional pics through the week. Each theme runs for one week, and new themes go live Mondays at 7 pm. For more info on how Thematic works, just click here.

Yes! Love this, I was going to lead with the sun and trees where leaves have grown, but I favor yours! Nice wide open theme again Carmi, so many ways one could go. Here's mine

I suspect that trees and plants will feature a lot this week. Here's the tale of a shrub.

I feel I often have an additional challenge with the thematic photographic project and that is to interpret and translate in French! But I believe I am up to the challenge. Here is my contribution this week.
