Grow Where You are Planted - MyWorld

In our part of the country we grow a lot of corn. This however, is a very note worthy location. Last weekend we found this lone corn stalk surviving in the gutter at a very busy intersection. One can only imagine the struggle this plant has endured to stay alive at this location. There must be a biblical message hidden here somewhere. Reminds me that it is a good thing to always look around you. Something interesting is at every intersection in life if you just look for it. The weird colors on the curb are real.


  1. It must have what it needs to survive. Definitely not a place where I am use to seeing corn grow. Thanks for sharing.

  2. It is clear that the story of this image is about the corn being in an unusual spot and surviving. You did a nice job when you placed the corn stalk at a 1/3 line. Normally I might have suggested that you remove,by cloning, some of the debris near the drain but in this case it adds to the sense of place. Have you considered using graduated filter or burning the edges of the image to keep the eyes within the frame? The darker grass at the top accomplishes this effort. Finally, are you planning to share the ears of corn later this year?

  3. Very interesting. It survived to grew that big is achievment

  4. What a great symbol for the struggle of life in the fast lane.

  5. True survivor indeed :)
