Safety first!


Old doors fascinate me (some friends use “haunt” to describe it…),  their textures so full of lives, chances,  stories and even  history, like this beautiful sample I found in Montevideo´s Ciudad Vieja. Safety first!

Layers and layers of paint, all sorts of wooden planks nailed together somehow having withstood wind and weather produce unique textures that have me shooting away.

Churches, old town house ruins, harbors, storerooms,  full of patina and stories to tell.
