Only detached by a crack, the two parts of this centuries-old wall are very close to each other but so different… The bricks in the upper right part have retained most of their color and texture whereas the lower left part is changed and covered by lichen.

Ratiborice, Czech Republic. May 2008. Canon EOS 300X, Sigma 28-135. Post-processing: color correction, distortion correction, sharpening, watercolor, blend modes.
