Beauty In Unexpected Places



In the parking lot at the grocery store, surrounded by acres of asphalt and planted in rock hard clay soil, this hibiscus flower nonetheless turned its face to the sky and drank in some January sunshine.

golden west - this is so cool. i walk home through my city and along the way i see unlikely beauty just like this hibiscus. i've thought of doing a series - a context shot to show the whole scene and then an isolated shot to show the little pocket of beauty. it's so cool that you saw this!! steven

Funny how bits of beauty here and there can tap you on the shoulder and remind you of how good it is to be alive!!!
