« on: March 19, 2016, 19:24:16 »
Please post your images of strange looking walls here:


Austin, TX, March, 2016

Odd arrangements of windows and doors, graffiti, unusual architecture, reflections off glass and anything else out of the ordinary, please.

Ron, it is not fair to start a thread with such a smash hit!  Great find!

Elsa, I like this elegant color coordination.

Thank you Akira.  I bet there is something in Tokyo within 10 minutes walk from your place.

Love the girl and mushroom BJ.

Bjørn, the first one is haunting.  A girl trying to pick up a poisonous fungus...does the metaphor have something to do with your local myth?

Here is a detail from one of the photos I posted. The house is vacated and the window blocked, but somebody has painted the illusion of looking inside a warm, cozy room. He has even signed the painting. Well done.

This is no match to what is here already but that's the one I passed along today on a stroll.

Interesting strange walls! :)

reviving an old thread for the moment, I found this wall interesting because it gives the illusion of depth and angle.  It's actually quite flat and shot straight on.
