i have this thing with …walls

pink wall with ivy growing from the right

i love looking through my past photos and seeing consistent themes. it’s funny how sometimes you don’t fully realise you have a ‘thing’ for something until you see that proof before your eyes. a nice kind of confrontation.

one such thing for me is walls, and i guess more specifically painted bricks. is it the uniformity – or sometimes the lack of? is it that i’m seeing something special in something others would consider mundane? am i just a little crazy?

paint splashes, peeling posters, ghost signage, holes and more. there’s definitely a little magic in walls. what do they encase? who lives or works inside them? what history do these walls contain?

do other people even think about walls this much?
