Bougainvilleas grow over a painted skylight.

Bougainvilleas grow over a painted skylight at a boutique near Boudhanath stupa, Nepal. I walked into this boutique on one of the alleys surrounding the stupa when I noticed this beautiful scene. The skylight had been painted yellow and bougainvilleas had slowly grown over the years to partially cover the light and create this painting-like image.
