By recommendation, I’ve cropped this image of a bit of real life hanging on a deteriorated wall in ValParaiso, Chile.

    I love this, and I love the other version! Somehow, I miss the top part on this, but on the other hand I don’t:). Make sense? I guess what I’m trying to say is that both versions to me are completely different – different enough to make two seperate entities. Son distintas, pero iguales. Sea como sea, me encata la textura, me encantan los colores, los tonos; en las dos tomas/ versiones de la misma toma? No se que pensar:). And I love the gritty (can’t translate that:)

  • jaja! gracias, rene! estoy totalmente de acuerdo.
