Now you're talking, Larry. I always have a hankering to peel off chipped paint like that. I'm trying to stiffle the urge. smile I love the old, faded colors.
Larry Bliss: Keep stifling--there's plenty of lead in those flakes...

Let's hear it for old paint Larry - I love the hidden art in all this!
Larry Bliss: Hidden art is a good way to describe it, since the building is normally closed to the public.
I look at this and wonder who and how many people have used this switch. Good detail with the peeling paint smile
Larry Bliss: I wonder the same myself...
I'm not sure that handling that switch would be a good idea!
Larry Bliss: It's okay--the electricity was off...
Excellent textures and details!
Larry Bliss: Thank you!

Larry Bliss: Thank you, Claire, and welcome to my blog...
I looked at your gallery and I can tell you that I really like it. Pretty pastel textures, shadow play and a good sense for details. I especially like this one. Best regards
Larry Bliss: I'm pleased to know that you looked into my archives. The picture was taken in 2009 inside an abandoned water treatment plant.
