Sometimes I push for a gritty look in my finished pictures, especially when surfaces are already rough and peeling and well down that road. Here, the remaining colors are so faint as to be mere suggestions of what once was. I find the hints of green and pink to be so unexpectedly touching that the only choice is to offer this aging beauty a gentle hand.

    Thank you for posing the question in beautiful imagery, I want to add….

  4. Evidence of entropy’s ultimate conquest, or life’s brief defiance of that knowledge. Those fading colors for me are vestiges of celebration, as limited as it may have been, in the presence of that unavoidable force.
