Feral Landscapes

When I recently came across the work of Tokyo Fantasy, I realized that another post had to be made.  According to www.pinktentacle.com, these are photoshopped images of Tokyo, projected forwards in time, far enough to be post-disaster, and for local vegetation to take it over and make the metropolis its own.

Given the climate of Tokyo, this is not so improbable, and would happen in a relatively short period of time.  Japanese ruins and abandoned buildings (haikyo) are particularly intriguing as they tend to get overtaken by molds, fungus and plants fairly quickly.

More to come.  I’m off sorting through my photo collection of feral vegetation.
