They Say, “They Devil is in The Details.” Not Here.

It's the wall that first caught my attention.
It’s the wall that first caught my attention.

This is a detail. That old saying doesn’t apply here. Devils are banned from this place. They can’t be in this detail. All you have to do is read the sign. What devil is gonna mess with a Central City pastor? The interesting thing about this little parking lot is that I’ve driven by it many times. It’s located on Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard. But, I never noticed it. I guess the combination of very few people out on a late Sunday afternoon kept me from being distracted, and that amazing winter light must have lit the wall just enough to catch my attention. There is one other detail that caught my eye. This building isn’t great and the paint probably isn’t the best, but look at the drain pipe. Somebody wanted to “class up the joint” by giving it a two-tone paint job. Red on red. Very cool.
