The Mundane Beauty of Things Growing In The Cracks
I was a little sad that they did such a thorough job of clearing the vegetation from the Govan graving docks. Pretty much everything is gone.
To be fair, there is still a barren industrial beauty about the place, but I do miss the sight of nature making its move to reclaim the space.
So today I went down to the docks specifically to photograph plants that are still there. Little things growing in the cracks.
There was a cold wind and I had a mind to wait for a warmer day - despite what the say in Game of Thrones, spring is coming.
But every time I have that slight nagging fear that this time the developers will have arrived for real and there'll be no more access to the site. A chance for memories, lost.
