Beauty in Decay by Majnouna Beauty in Decay by Majnouna
This is a detail from a van that's been parked outside the calligrapher's building for so long the tires are decomposing. It's aged in the most extravagantly aesthetic way,.

Just scrolled down to check if I commented on this already. NO?!

It's incredible shot, it's perfect colors, it's like modern art surreal painting!

And it must be lousy car :D

mmm, I gotta spend me some time in junkyards... it's the closest I can come to decaying cars like this one...
I bet I can take a few nice pics with my Nikon Coolpics S9 :P

That door looks like a modernized Pollock or something. Sweet :)

Love it! :wow: I could spend hours examining the colours... is the rest of the van like this too? Imma go buy a decaying vehicle in that case.

I thought it was a painting, like many others! It's stunning :O

Now that's a vehicle transformed into an extraordinary work of art. Sometimes the old rotting relics you find on your travels become a thing of almost surreal beauty when viewed close up. :) Nice capture!

Funny, this was next to an abstract watercolor in my inbox and I thought they were by the same artist :lol: I always did like rusty and peeling surfaces around town.
