In The Alley

In The Alley, originally uploaded by gawdessness.

We found this tree, not much more than a bush really, caught by security bars against the window in an underused building.

Who hung the Christmas balls, tinsel and ribbon on it?

I can imagine stories about that, but I won't likely ever know.

There it was, off an ally, to the side of an empty lot, in an area that could be called the "inner city".

Where the poorest live and where many of the people that used to be in mental health facilities were "mainstreamed into society" ended up.

It does make you wonder who might have placed them there. Nice photo.

such a fantastic capture!!!

I love the idea of life finding a way to thrive (survive?) there and then someone appreciated it enough to decorate it.

Makes my day.

Ever on the lookout for beauty in the city. This works nicely.

Photo Quotes

When I ask to photograph someone, it is because I love the way they look and I think I make that clear. I'm paying them a tremendous compliment. What I'm saying is, I want to take you home with me and look at you for the rest of my life.
