I was returning from a visit to the local Whole Foods Market through a neighborhood I grew up in when I spotted an overgrown lot, vacant since a recent home demolition. I though I would poke around and see what was there with Mr. D40 of course. Here is one of the subjects we found. Edits done with Apple's iPhoto. Enjoy!
