A beauty in the rough

It was Sunday. I was walking home along the tiny road that leads to my apartment, back from the regular Japanese language class in the morning when I stumbled upon this magnificent show at the side of the road. My eyes lit up at the sight of the perfectly coordinated effort of mankind’s abandoned creation and Mother Nature to create a symphony of colours on the grey pitch road, under the monochrome grey sky, clear from the rain earlier in the day. I did put some colour and FX, later on to add spice to the photograph which otherwise had a tinge of grey from the natural lighting conditions that one might expect on a typical monsoon day.
