The yin and yang of West Ridge

Last week I went out with a friend to photograph & document graffiti in the neighborhood for a project she's been working on. We found plenty of spray paint as well as some very sad looking foreclosures (see my Good, Bad & Ugly blog for those images). Throughout the afternoon though, I also came across plenty of lovely homes and gardens -- this one is in the 2400 block of Fitch, just north of Indian Boundary Park.
