    This peeling paint looks like it has a story to tell, Joanne, several, in fact.
    Looks like you are enjoying some macro work!

  • Thank you Frannie, It does indeed tell a lot of stories, being a very old outhouse door! Still in use but obviously not painted for a long long time. I hope I captured the 3D effect that was highlighted by the morning sun on the peeling paint.

    First time I can believe that peeling paint can do some justice – this is a very neat abstract

    Definitely 3D, and it does work as an abstract, Joanne. An old outhouse, huh? Gee, who knew!

  • Thank god no one came back there on that path while I was photographing it, they would have thought I was crazy! :-D Thanks again for the comments and visit! :-)
