moss

Rail road which we can look down from avenue de choissy through the fence. I don't know the exact words to describe this view in any languages but this has been always what attracts attracts me. Moss on the stone walls, heavy but warm nature colours. This is the same condition as what we can often see around the temple/shrine in Japan. That brings me a nostalgia, deep meditation and calm.
Maybe this is a "zen" spirit, Although even I Japanese can't explain what it is, but the word "zen" is used very much for any sorts of products in France.

The texture and colors created by the moss on the brick wall is very inviting. I see what you mean about nature's zen spirit.
