A Plant of Life

By IshanPathak  
Quite a time since i uploaded, but have been very busy in studies.

It was Sunday and i just took my camera out with me for a walk in my courtyard to remove morning stiffness.
There i noticed this. Not an eye candy, not a breath taker, but somehow it grabbed my attention.

As i say for me there is no such thing as a bad or good subject. I just photographed this because it teaches me something.

See how this plant has grown out of nowhere. The only wild plant in the whole courtyard.Just a tiny bit of soil, only water from seeping dirty water, but still it has grown, against the odds. In this way we too should not see what have we got, or how much. We just have to be content in it, and live against all difficulties, all hardships of life and stand tall like that little plant.

Little does it know, that its just a matter of time when it gets teared off or stamped upon but still it is there.. And now it has made a place in my photography collection. Smile

Nobody asked for life to deal us with these hardships we've dealt. We have to take these cards ourselves and flip them, Dont expect no help..

Heres my 2 cents for Sunday Grin Now for a cup of tea.
Enjoy guys Smile

As usual, my camera doesnt provide shallow DOF! Sad

I took this on Background Defocus mode which provide most software dof but it also couldnt produce more than that.

Anyway you get the message..Thank you for your comment. Smile
