Yellow Lotus

I always pass by this corner whenever I go to our community library.
It's an ugly nook where old tires and other junkies are piled.

But one day, this yellow lotus just caught my eye.

Who would expect to find such beauty in this corner.

The by-standers chuckled when I stopped and took some shots.

I didn't mind. This beauty is worth more than an embarrassment.
