Perry Part 3: Textures

In my previous post I commented on how I was unsure how to title this next one. I guess the main things I take away from these photos are the properties of paint and the unique textures they provide.

Perry has a number of murals, or what remains of murals, painted on the side of many buildings. Can you tell what is painted here?

This was on the same wall as the Laundromat sign from Perry Part 2:

IMG_4528Before this I had never used chipping paint as a focus of my photography. However, I have to say I quite liked it, and will probably try it again!

Puzzles

Over the March Break– I know, A LONG time ago– I was stuck at home. I was unable to walk, and being only thirty years old my diagnosis (which I am embarrassed to admit) puzzled myself, family, and the doctors! I had to keep my feet up for 4 days straight; doctor’s orders. I decided to work on a puzzle that had been in our closet for years!

After I finished the puzzle I was inspired to take some photographs:

I was trying to capture the texture of the puzzle pieces along with various pieces of text.

IMG_4393The puzzle was 5000 pieces and took many many hours to complete! However, I am happy to say I am pleased with the photographs.
