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:

Perry Part 2: Signs

And now for the more artistic photographs of Perry…

As my sister and I walked through Perry various signs caught my eye:

IMG_4478 - Copy IMG_4478

This front window was so clean I was able to experiment with what is on, behind, and before the glass. What do you notice?

IMG_4487 - CopyOne of my favourites from the day. I like to see the natural, weathered look, that happens to objects.

Stay tuned for the third and final part of our Perry journey– AND my FAVOURITE pictures from the trip! I am not sure whether I should title it “Paint” or “Textures”
