Hidden Gem


3456 34th Avenue So – alley

There’s really very little to tell: I was feeling the gloom of the day after a week of above normal temps and crazy blue skies. I was done (or so I thought) taking pictures and had pulled over to take pictures of the POT HOLES on 35th Street East, when out of the corner of my eye I noticed colors on this glum, gloomy, grey day, and I found this. The surprise and absolute sweetness of this art, took me aback. Add to that the aged garage and, well, this was a keeper. Side note: the alley itself is a surprise! It doesn’t go straight through; near the end it make a 90 degree turn and you feel like you are driving into someone’s yard!
