|Art still lives here|
Thematic. Windows. Here.
Flat out, I love this scene. Every time I see it, I'm snapped right back to that cold late winter Sunday afternoon when I took it.
This place is as desolate as it seems, a facade of crumbling, overgrown brick in the back of a forgotten alleyway in a part of downtown that most people simply avoid. Yet here in the middle of pretty much nowhere, I stumbled across a flash of artistic loveliness that suggested once upon a time someone cared enough to try to make a difference.
I wish I could have gone back in time, as I would have said thank you to whoever painted this for proving me wrong. See, when I set out on my walk I figured I'd never find inspiration in the crumbling ruins of a down-on-its-luck part of town. This scene proved otherwise.
Your turn: Ever been pleasantly surprised by beauty in a place where you'd think it wouldn't otherwise exist?
