A Broken Wall Sunset

I meant to post this last Friday as a welcome to the Chinese New Year… the year of the dog. “Who let the dogs out?” Sorry, my younger self showing through there…  For the rest of you that was the chorus to a fairly terrible song released in 2000. So this Broken Wall Sunset image is…
