Green garden in the city. Not sitting in there seats. Around people. Is not feeling a little space? Greetings.

I have seen some gardens like this on top of buildings too.

Sorry I have not been around to comment much Ken, but it has been the end of our financial year and thing get quite rought every March. Thank goodness it is over until next year. :)

Very cool. These little green spaces are many times over looked but they add so much to a community.

A wonderful little green park! It's a nice escape from the concrete! And I do remember that film. Wow! Funny how you forget about things like that.

Heston really knew how to hold a gun.

Marie Reed said...

KM,
That's not Charleton Heston!!!! That's Moses!!

SP said...

Ha! That's a great find, though it does look more like an old allotment that a spot worth killing for, no?

Steffe said...

I did actually see that movie not to long ago.

Top shot terrific. Scary film. Even scarier second image knowing his views. Loved V's comment, she beat me mine was Ben Hur.

A great movie in it's time. Wonder if they still show it on cable?

It's nice to have a green space in big cities. - -Dave

Adam said...

Looks like you're actually able to walk on the grass too which makes it different from parks in Paris. Like everything else in the city here, grass is just to be looked at.

Daryl said...

KenMac .... I used Picnik.com's Vibrance effect to make the colors brighter ...

Dusty Lens said...

Ha! Perfect title for this green lawn. We have a few weeks to go before we have soylent green lawns.

I hate to be a sci-fi pedant, but "Soylent Green" isn't about the last green place on earth. Soylent Green is the government-concocted miracle-foodstuff that is designed to feed the nation after a massive population boom/food shortage. Supposedly made from kelp from the bottom of the ocean, Heston discovers the factory where it's manufactured and realizes that it's made from people rounded-up by the overpopulation vans. Hence his immortal cry at the climax of the film:

"SOYLENT GREEN IS PEOPLE!!!!"

So Alex, that explains the color of my grass (brown).

Aha!! Yes, Soylent Green it is!

I loved the original film, saw it on release at the cinema. Quite like the remake with Will Smith, thought it was quite well done.
Thanks for the info.
