In praise of plants
A world stripped of plants is a dead world. A city can be a dead world, emptied of diversity and life. To live in a world where a tree is considered a potential hazard and is therefore removed, is not to live in a world at all. I choose to live in the forests of this world, for I love plants, and there is no place more alive than a jungle. I really do have an inordinate fondness for trees.

Flowers are pretty, but they are in all reality, nothing but very colorful sex organs. The whole plant is a fascinating biological entity, which lives, struggles, grows and reproduces just like the rest of us do. When I take photos of just flowers, I always chuckle. What would people think of a photograph of a lion's penis or an antelope's vagina? But then again, plants reproductive organs really can be quite astoundingly beautiful.
