I was struck by how the plans, their shadows, the sun on the wall, the old stones, and the graffiti all worked together to make an organic whole.

I like walls too and keep an eye out for small plants which have some how managed to plant themselves in old wall crevices. The mustard coloured graffiti blends well with the foregroundplants and I like the pale tones among the shadows.
You put your finger on exactly why this sight struck me: how the graffiti blends so well and seems to be an organic part of the whole scene! (It also reminds me I have yet to add descriptions to some images in this series… and that I have yet to post most of my walls from India, too.) Thanks much for your insightful comment and the fave, Clive!
I love it, the soft organic plants contrast so well with the hard stone, and they seem almost like an extension of the shadows. You were away from the bubble quite a while—no criticism intended: I’ve just taken a long break myself—just wanted to say that it’s nice to see your work again. I’ve missed you.
Thank you for that wonderful comment and welcome, Marjorie! Yes, I took quite some time to decide whether to stay at all… then found that I missed people here, and found some things better, some things worse… it sort of evens out – so here I am again. :)
