Last weekend I had a chance to capture some wild interior textures of peeling wallpaper and cracked plaster. Usually, when I see this sort of thing in another photographer's image... it is some post-Soviet era abandoned hospital or somesuch. It always seems like the cool images happen a few plane tickets and months of travel away from here. This opportunity was just down the road from us. In a gorgeous home. On a beautiful spring day.
It made me very aware that most of the time we tend to see what we want to see, rather than actually seeing what is all around us. I feel mighty lucky for being in the right state of mind, camera in hand, on a good day.
And yes, there are other minor textures and slight color shifts added in Photoshop in post.
