    • Thanks, Eliot. I thought I’d made a photograph of this same wall some years ago, but I can’t find it.

  2. I like the warm light on the bricks, a nice complement to the metal and black and white parts.

    • You’re right! I never see these things until you or Ken or someone else tells me!

      • You don’t see them consciously maybe, but perhaps you see them when you take in the whole gestalt and decide it’s something you want to photograph?

        • I think a lot of my photographs just follow some kind of visceral experience. It’s a “shoot now, and ask questions later” kind of thing. It’s “ooo, that’s cool”; make composition; click.

  3. The top photo looks like the whitewash was removed since the bottom photo was taken. The drain pipe is constant but someone worked on this building.

  4. Well weird. It’s very clearly the same lamp post. The second image’s Rt edge (in the post) which is the first image (chronologically) ends just at the point where the Lt edge of the white painted section begins. So I can’t compare that section of brick work. Bu the brick work around the down pipe looks like there is efflorescence (dictionary: the migration of a salt to the surface of a porous material, where it forms a coating). I’m thinking that the efflorescence faded or disappeared due to climatic conditions. But I don’t understand that white oblong – that is paint. Why? Another puzzle!

    • Ah, efflorescence! I think you’ve figured out that white coating. Now I’m really looking forward to seeing how that brick wall looks next year. Will the efflorescence be back? The paint is a puzzle I don’t think I’ll ever figure out.
