    Nice find Kathie and I like that shade of green!


  • Thanks Deb, the black soot or burnt paint really sets off the green nicely :)

    Great capture. The white markings are interesting and the green shade makes it look like a beautiful painting. Very nice.

  • Thanks so much Nara, the silver metal underneath appears white in this photo, I still can’t figure out how these markings occurred ??? :)

    Green is unusual. Like the markings – did you see those with your naked eye before photographing?

  • Thanks Marguerite, yes thats what drew me to them, I took several shots but this was the best one. Just below this was another panel but with bluish and silver markings, its so amazing what there is to find at an auto wreckers….I think this one was pretty old.
