The Ivy Doesn't Quit

I used to let the ivy grow up the side wall of the garage, because it was so pretty.  The only problem is that it grows under the shingles and into the garage which is not good.  So several years ago I stripped it all off, and kept after it.  Last year I stored leaves from Fall in garbage bags next to the garage to use as compost, and this year the ivy had a shorter path to get to the garage from where it grows on the wall.  It has grown up the garage wall quickly.  It is beautiful, but I need to rip it all off.   So I decided to photograph it first, and infrared makes the dark ivy so much more dramatic.
