Trash or Treasure in Placida 6


December 18, 2014

Here’s the side of an old shipping container at the marina. The marks look almost like writing to me. If they were, I wonder what the message—or messages—would be. Like the other weathered surfaces in this series, it’s a palimpsest.

  1. I could see your attraction to this, probably because we both like patterns and colors and I think that’s more than enough to be interesting. It’s isolating those patterns and colors that can be difficult.

    • I agree, Ken. I couldn’t make all the interesting surfaces at this marina into compositions worthy of sharing. (That may be a good thing.)

    • Thank you, Andy. I’m glad I didn’t pass this one up; it would have been easy to do had I not been in the right frame of mind.

  4. I love this one, too – all the mystery and energy in those scratchy lines.
