24 Sep 11.  While subbing on Thur & Fri of this week I noticed a rather nice retaining wall outside this newly remodeled school which was "crawling" with some lovely vines. Portions were turning a vivid red and most of the rest were a vibrant green. I thought the wall with the vines would make a nice image, but I didn't have the camera with me and, even if I had, the crowds of students would have made the shot all but impossible. So Jan and I went there this afternoon, and with NO kiddies anywhere near, I was able to get several nice images. The wall runs in two portions along the entire length of a city block, with a break in the middle for the steps to the school. As it turned out, each of the images I took would stand on their own quite nicely, but I thought that putting them together to show off 1/2 of the wall would make for a much nicer presentation, so that's just what I've done. This is the western half of the retaining wall that fronts Hamilton International 6-8.  ISO 200; 1/200 sec @ f / 5 for each of the 5 images that make up the panel.
