Painting the town yellow

HDP  185

For those of you who have visited Hanoi (or even Hanoi Daily Photo for the past few months), this ochre color is unmistakably very typical of the city, whether on the old colonial mansions or on the local tube houses from the Old Quarter. This wall is losing of its original color, but it's giving it a certain charm!

Lovely textures on that wall...and I like the plant roots too.

I see you have that "photographer's eye" for peeling paint, mold and moss! HA This is a lovely abstract painting in my eye.

Tres belle photo...
I agree with Virginia, the picture does remind an abstract painting.
