Life grows everywhere

Photographer's Statement:

Life grows even when its tough, for example the plants that grow through the cracks in the sidewalk. Nature has evolved with us and has always found ways to thrive. When we give to the earth it will give back to us, the flower growing in the tree reminds me that even when conditions are tough it’s still possible to thrive.
