Four Walls

This evening I went through the photos that I plan to print in the near future, looking for three or four pictures that have enough in common to include in a single post.  And there they were, four photos of walls.  I have a gallery of walls but the photos in this post won’t be included until I get them printed and look at them for several weeks.  It’s very possible that after a while I won’t like any of these photos.  But I’m not so picky when choosing pictures for the web log.

The tiles remaining on the wall look like they form a peninsula on a map surrounded by a sea of concrete.  Or maybe a map from a 1980s computer game.  The fallen tiles on the ledge add a bit more interest.

Here is another untended wall.  I can’t understand why the pots are up so high.  To get some sunlight?  There can’t be much sunlight in a garden with such a high wall.

The very nice buildings and the fence were built just a couple of years ago.  Someone must have struck the fence with a truck or some heavy equipment.  This is city property and it’s downtown so I imagine it will be repaired soon.

This was my second trip to this alley.  The first time I made a photo of just the wrestlers and the alley and then a similar one of a man walking away from me.  I wasn’t satisfied with either of these so I went back a few days later and waited to see who might pass by.  This was the best result.  The red jacket stands out from the background, my timing was good, and her stance is something like a warrior’s.  The paper is held out like a sword and she looks to be marching.  I wish I could have gotten more of the wrestler’s foot in the frame but I think the woman in red makes up for it.
