Modern art walls in Granada, they remind me of Guernika and some sky with spirals

Lovely images, Paco!

Walls are like clouds, everchanging with time and maybe some human action...

#1 Faces. a wall in Bourgogne (Avallon, France). Already published in the Objet trouvé section, somehow became invisible. Maybe I'll have to re-upload it...
#2 a sandstone wall in Périgord, France

Ciao from Massimo

Well seen and captured, as always, Massimo!

Paco, you turned the mundane into the unusual.  I also like the processing and its Brassai-esque night mood.  (Although it might be shot during the daytime...)

Thank you Akira. It is indeed daytime processed to taste in lightroom.

Not quite strange, just graffiti-ed!

thousands of years ago:


Aboriginal rock paintings at Mulgowan, Gundabooka National Park(basically, the middle of nowhere!  ;D)

And ... thousands of years later, caught red handed!
  ;)

Graffiti-art wall Hosier Lane, Melbourne.

Worthy additions to this thread Paco & Arthur.

Does anyone know if Ron Scubadiver who started this thread is still active - I have not seen him posting for quite a while?

Thanks Fons - good news. 

With the sad loss of Mike Gorman, one sometimes wonders if cyber friends have passed on when they have not posted for a while.

Part of a foundation wall of a ruined house found once and again in the woods while walking there.

Very interesting Akira. Does it have meaning or just decorative?

 Here the front wall of a school for young kids. I find it not inviting at all..

Thank you, Paco.  I think it is just decorative.  As you would already suspect, these are tiles embedded in concrete.  And I would guess that the worker was bored with making similar patterns over and over again.  :D
