You can say a lot about veterans hospitals, but great places for art isn't one of them. The art on the walls are ether generic landscapes they get from the "Mediocre are us" store, or they are military themes with grainy, blurry, historical pictures. They always have an American displayed prominently in the center of the picture.
I always park in the handicapped parking lot, or as veterans' call it, "I got my ass shot off in any war you can think of." I find a few good images there, but I have to look over my shoulder for the V.A. police who have a zero tolerance for cameras.
On this particular day I was going to the clinic for head injuries, including severe balance problems, which is me. On my way out, I stopped to relax for a few minutes, before I fought my way through one of most congested freeways in the world.
I was zooming in and out with my camera, when I noticed A flashy new black Jaguar that was waxed to within an inch of being a mirror. I noticed a wavy image on the hood I zoomed in and way very surprised to see a beautiful abstract images.
I really like it, and consider myself very lucky to have captured it.
