Wouldn’t it be fun to have a photo of a wall on your wall? Excellent shot!

I love all the stories that tried to be told here, but are gone. Really nice!

Thank you, Lynn. I should share what a friend wrote to me about his reactions:
a great image
a documentation of the history of that wall… how long has it been there?
all the raw visual clues to create any number of narratives… imperative
a vehicle for communication… what did I miss?
a metaphor/symbol of the importance/ unimportance of the messenger
a flat/3D time capsule
a comment on how insignificant the wall is except when it is needed
