Wall Peelings

Graffiti Underground, Philadelpia , Pennsylvania

Every winter, I try to escape the cold and head somewhere warm. We landed in Florida yesterday afternoon and plan to spend some time in Fort Lauderdale before we head to the Everglades and Key West. I will still be posting unless I have internet accessibility issues.

Today's image is from Philadelphia's Graffiti Underground located on an abandoned loading pier jutting out into the Delaware River. The underground is a favorite spot for paintballers and graffiti artists (as well as urbex photographers). While there are so many opportunities to shoot unusual compositions, I was really taken with this "wall covering" that had peeled away from the wall. The textures and lines in the covering led my eye toward the terrific vanishing point made by the column openings.
