I just love the texture and color that weather and time create on fences, walls, railings… There always comes a point where they need to be repaired or replaced but until then, the character that develops appeals to me.
This one isn’t very weathered yet but it’s starting.
I do have to admit, as much as I love the texture, it’s also reassuring to see that people care enough to keep the neighborhood from falling into disrepair. I actually took pictures of this fence as someone was painting it!
And I admired this wall for weeks before finally getting this shot. Lucky I did it too! A few days later, I saw that work had begun to fix it up…
