Weekly Photo Challenge – Growth

This weeks Photo Challenge, Growth, has us “Evoke the excitement of entering a new year with a photo that shows growth.” Two of the photos are recent, while the third photo was taken while hiking at Solstice Canyon in August of 2013.

Nature is surely amazing, whatever man builds, nature seeks to reclaim as its own. First is a vine growing up a concrete wall, the second is nature taking back an abandoned home in Solstice Canyon.

In 1929, Williams became the first African American member of the American Institute of Architects and later designed a prominent landmark at the Los Angeles International Airport, the “LAX Theme Building (1961).””

      1. That is so interesting! I love how our curiosity leads us to learn these things
