M26 Shadows and Light


In most photographs with natural scenes as their subjects, manmade structures are only used as decorations, so as not to overshadow nature’s beauty. However, in this picture the buildings do not evoke such feelings. Through the years, their wood, bricks and glass have attained a weathered, well-seasoned look, making them blend in nicely with their surroundings. The vines crawling on the walls add to the feeling of harmony between humans and nature, a theme worth dwelling on as this balance is essential to humanity’s survival.
