Foliar Filigree

|Ficus pumila var. minima|

There is something about certain vining plants that can just create the coolest mod motif on a big ol' wall.  This photo shoot took place at a posh pilates parlor nearby. Our model, Ficus pumila 'Minima' also known as Creeping Fig, is seen tracing it way in a delicately elegant fashion up the slate grey wall of the aforementioned pilates parlor.  While the shoot was taking place I couldn't help to think what a perfect presentation of something so natural and so calming.  The contrast of the cool grey and the vibrant green is rather soothing.  What a comforting thing to see before and after a grueling exercise session or a stressful day.[singlepic id=96 w=620 h= mode=watermark float=]It reminds me of being on holiday somewhere with ancient ruins and witnessing natures handiwork as it remodels and retiles something old making it something new again.  All done with some sort of precision.  The look is fresh.  The look is alive.  The look is vibrant.
