As the temperature is soaring it is way too hot to go out to take photos so today’s black and white challenge photos are from the archives. A couple are reruns of photos I’ve posted before. Sometimes I crop them before playing with the filters to create something new.
With so much decorating going on at my house for the past few years I have well documented walls at my house.
First a memory from 2013 when we had our shower replaced . A pretty ugly sight from the beginning of the renovation. Next is the wall panelling in what is now my bedroom and a gratuitous dog photo. Cindy nearly always walks in to any shot I’m trying to take around the house and garden.
Here are a selection of walls in Melbourne.
First two views that I like a lot of old brick walls near the Yarra River and then the outer wall of what I consider one of the ugliest buildings I have ever seen. It is in Federation Square in Melbourne. I hate this type of architecture but it is a good photography subject.
Murals & Ghost Signs
I don’t like graffiti on principle. I get that it can be art but a lot of it is just ugly scribble on the sides of buildings and public transport. I won’t photograph that type of graffiti because it gives the people who do it the attention they desire. If you had ever had to clean paint off a train with nasty chemicals you would understand why I say this. I do like murals and also the old, faded advertising signs known as “ghost signs” painted on to walls.
