Nature returns


Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I started a project half a year ago with the idea to photograph man made structures and buildings where nature has started to take over again. Here is one image that I may have published before, but this is a rather different interpretation following a very useful eConsultation with Brooks Jensen, the editor of Lenswork.


Please have a look at my site Stig Hammarsten | Nature returns for more images. Most of the images are shot with an M9, but there are also images shot with Nikon D800E and Zeiss lenses.

I very much like this picture, and the idea of your project. I am reminded of a poam by the American Carl Sandburg, called Grass.


Pile the bodies high at Austerlitz and Waterloo,

Shovel them under and let me work--

I am the grass; I cover all.


And pile them high at Gettysburg

And pile them high at Ypres and Verdun.

Shovel them under and let me work.

Two years, ten years, and passengers ask the conductor:

What place is this?

Where are we now?


I am the grass.

Let me work.

this is an ambitious project of yours and I like the idea very much. If we open our eyes we can see this happen more often than we think. Creepers are quick to gain back as soon as we start neglecting and forgetting and deserting places.
