Weekly Photo Challenge: Wall – If you ran into one don’t give up

Shantiniketan EZCC wall painting, tribal life

Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it. Michael Jordan

And that’s what I tried to do with my camera. 🙂  I think I can share these wall photos in response to this week’s photo challenge – wall.
