Just a wall

In Valdelavilla it had just snowed. And the sun was just starting to come out (light seems to be less interested in valleys). And I had just a little snippet of free time. So I just grabbed my camera and sat down, taking photos of moss, lichens and the tiny flora that tends to live on walls. Especially stone walls. Just then Peter, a fellow teacher, walks by with a group of students.

And here you can see Margherita, he said, taking photos of a wall…

Yes. Just a wall. But so much more!
