Many renditions of this type of home is still found in well kept order in this area. It is dark in the underpass, so they have these lights to help us see. I thought the way the capture of the light mixing with the tree is interesting.

Blue Belle

The almost solstice sun cast long shadows, on older tidy garage doors.

This door had vines growing over it. Shadows cast are dramatic, veil-like.

She wears a blue butterfly in her hair.
