Sometimes man-made structures get a bad rap, ugly edifices stretching to the sky, lots of black-top on every corner block, seemingly endless highways running off into the hills. I guess constructions blueprinted by humans are just fated to come in a distant second when it gets a scheduled weekend series with ol' mother nature. When she does her thing, you best not compete. Just sit back and take it all in. It's out of our control anyway, and as we can see by the destruction and havoc seen in the Midwest the last week or so, often it can be anything but pretty. Sometimes though, through no fault of our own, we find a rare, simple yet beautiful confluence of man and nature.
Beware. It might be at your feet, just off the sidewalk
