19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Mobile
Signs of life

This was taken during Covid. I took a lot of walks during the pandemic & this photo stands out to me. My eye is drawn to the tiny tree growing on top of the abandoned building. The tree, sky and power lines make a bold contrast to the bleak abandoned buildings. The little tree symbolizes hope for the future to me.
