Found wall paintings
For years I have documented odd textures, marks and other human references located in cityscapes; “imprints” in place that when “framed” appear to be abstract paintings. The past two summers I spent a month in Xiamen China, where I rediscovered my interest in these unique textures, primarily found in urban settings.
The image in the banner along with the image above are from the ancient Kalyuan Temple, Renshou Pagoda, located in ancient city of Quanzhou the that has two towers in the east and west corners of the land with the temple in the center of the ancient compound. The walls where these were photographed surround the main temple. These appear to be very old with water damage, which makes for the best pictures.
