wonderfully strange.

Love this, graphically perfect. Pity the eyes are scratched, yet maybe that was intentional?

39th Decay - another very cool photo with some grit!
Cheers, Jose'

did someone scratch his eyes out?

Excellent image to represent decay JM, from the art to the walls that surround it, also, is that a bit of rust I see on the grill!

Sharon said...

The old wall has a certain character that age and decay gives it. The painting, not so much.

Woody said...

I can't tell how old the mural is when compared to the structure. It's nice, but sadly defaced. Brilliant photo!

Jarart said...

This is kind of strange and could be a bit frightening to come on at night. Great shot!

Photo Cache said...

Your decay series is wonderful.

Any chance of hosting a meme of decay?

Kate said...

An image that would make me pause if I came upon it. Interesting how some structures and objects lose their value and then decay.

Art said...

Excellent image, love it

RedPat said...

Seems to be a certain amount of anger there!

Sylvia K said...

Like the others, I do love your decay series and this one is fascinating! You do find the good ones! Enjoy your evening, JM!

Some decay is from neglect, others from vandalism. You got both in the same image.

VP said...

This a quite strange case of decaying decay, which is even more sad because the mural wasn't bad at all!

Andrew said...

A lovely image JM.
Most people would just walk past and not even give it a second glance... not you my friend.
Thanks for sharing.

The final result is still ART ... nice find indeed !

Randy said...

The master of decay strikes again! Great shot.

Julie said...

I guess it to be better than someone takes their anger out on a painting than on a person. An interesting find, Jose.

Such a disturbing kind of decay - fascinating!

Halcyon said...

Interesting artwork/graffiti. It does seem to make quite the statement.

Irony abounds. Someone paints a picture on a wall. Someone else comes along and scratches it all up. Then a photographer comes along and takes a picture of it. Is this a neat world or what?

I love this!

Defaced graffiti... how bizarre can it get? But I really like your shot.
