Guarding at the Gate
I never took formal training in arts. When I was the kid I always dreaded Tuesdays when the arts teacher announced her new weekly torture. I never succeeded in the trade and I lack the passion in the paints.
This is one of the best pictures I took when I was young. The blue evening cast works very well with the warm lights inside the building, and I somehow got the wizardry's blessing and framed the stature nicely with the backdrop. It's amazing.
Oh and by the way, happy new year. I would continue to show some of my favorites in following days.
