Persistence - The photo is of a dried crawling vine branching out of a seam in a concrete retaining wall near an interstate highway.
It took me three tries to get this image… The first time, I was lazy and hand-held the camera under direct sunlight. The second time, there were a few small dead leaves clinging to the vines that disrupted the lines. The third time, I had my tripod and it was a cloudy day at Winter’s end. However, the name doesn’t refer to the three attempts, it refers to a life-form that is determined to survive even in the most inhospitable of environments.
