This is another photograph that I took while walking in the streets of Guanajuato, Mexico several years ago. I like the colors and shapes of the stones in this old building exterior wall. This is, for me, found abstract art.

 While walking the streets with friends in Guanajuato, Mexico I photographed this scene of a green weed growing next to a distressed purple wall. I like the idea of an old broken wall next to a new growing plant.
