Hidden Beauty

I was staying at one of my closest friends’ house in Central PA. He has an office in the downtown area where I had dropped him off to take care of some business, while I was driving around the outskirts of town looking for photo-ops.

We set up a time for me to pick him up and I parked behind his establishment to find this mini wonderland of colors. It was amazing and surprising. In this tiny, alcove that’s almost always obscured by shade from walls on two sides and tall trees on the third side, was this beautiful scene with light rays beaming down onto vines and colored leaves slowly crawling up the brick walls.
