Layers of Time

Last year I didn't make a lot of images with my big girl camera but one day in early April I drove over to the Heights. It is an old neighborhood in Houston that for the most part has been rejuvenated but there are still pockets where old homes and businesses are in disrepair.

I photographed some of the old buildings but the things that fascinated me most were details. I don't know what it is about photographers and peeling paint or posters but it seems to be a continuing thread with them since the 1930's. Maybe it is something about layers of time or abstracts. Yeah, I think that is why I made this image.

  1. I have captured several images around Mexico of buildings sloughing paper and plaster. They fascinate me.
