Passage of time

By Sue_R  
Another close-up/abstract. I really have become totally obsessed with taking this type of photo at the moment. Loving the colours in this one of peeling paint on the wood on an old capstan in Maryport. Amazing to see how many different colours it must have been painted over the years. I reckon it would make great wallpaper but we don't really have much use for wallpaper on a boat 😂🤣

You can't beat a good bit of multi coloured peeling paint

This is to wood what rust is to metal, Sue. Lovely textures and layers.

No doubt someone will come along and paint it, removing a photographer's dream.
