The story behind the image
I was on my way to a photo shooting and passed this brick wall which is not beautiful at all. However, I was stunned that a dandelion had been able to plant itself onto (or into?) the wall and could grow a full blossom. Amazing. To me, this is a sign of hope that even in the least promising environments there is life.
Or to quote Dr. Ian Malcolm (a character from the movie Jurassic Park): “I’m simply saying that life, uh… finds a way.” – And this image expresses this thought perfectly.
