Shadow Shot Sunday #1
Such an inhospitable environment for new life to survive and thrive.
This tiny seedling reminded me of many students I used to work with, their surroundings were barren and they were parched of love and nutriment. Yet despite the odds they clung on, absorbing what they could to nurture themselves.
I like the long shadow of the stem that's hidden behind the tiny leaves. This plantlet looked so fragile, yet defiant in the face of the inevitable crowds that will cut short its life once the holidays begin.
A busy beach is no place for a tiny plant to grow.
Hey Harriet hosts Shadow Shot Sunday.
