I snapped this picture with my cell phone on my way out of the garage at work this week.
I intended to go back with my camera to get a wider view or a different angle. Alas, work trapped me inside most of the week and by the time I got back to the garage today with my camera in hand, the workers had quit for the day.
On my way to meet my wife I walked past these outside the restaurant next door.
Then as I waited outside my her office I took pictures of the building, of the brick plaza, the blinds in the window, even the stripes on my espadrilles. Then I noticed the hostas in the planter I was sitting on.
I love the parallel veins in the leaves, don't you?
