Series: My Old B&W Film Creations - Film for Friday, Shadow for Saturday, Vegetation (!!!) for Silly Sunday
It's the architrave of Parthenon, where, in the joint between the marble pieces, has grown up something vegetation. It's the era before start the works of the maintenance of the Acropolis monuments. It seems very strange to be there something green, as it is very harmful to the integrity of the marbles.
Pay attention to the shadow on the column, how strongly the rib cavity is understood.

Fascinating to see where plants grow - an image with lots of other interest too.

Air can move soil and dust which sits on the surface of cornices. Then spores of plants can fall on the accumulated soil. Rain and sun will do the rest. You just witness the result here.

But... Try and grow the plant in your garden and see what happens. Or rather...doesn't Smile
