Nature Along City Streets
All Photos Taken by Me in the Sunset District of San Francisco
While walking home the other day from my jaunt out at the beach, I decided to take some shots of flower beds and plantings in driveways and entrances of homes and apartment buildings. Being in the city, there are many streets that look so stark and clinical with just stucco homes and bare, gray sidewalks. Some have plants or flowers at their garage doors or entrance ways and some do not. I always wonder what type of people live in all of these homes. Do the ones that plant flowers have more respect for nature just because they have these flowers? Are the ones that have bare sidewalks in front of their homes more clean and tidy? It's just a fascination I have. It's fun to imagine what and who is behind those stucco walls by seeing the outside facade. Much like meeting someone with their outer persona and wondering who they really are inside. I guess I have too much time on my hands :D
These are just a few that I found interesting and I'll have a couple of more tomorrow.
