Appropriately, this looks like it could be somewhere in outer space, John!
John Prior: Thanks Ginnie, another country, another world smile
very god still life, artistic value to me
John Prior: Thanks Chantal, that's what I thought.
I think the box and the wall have seen better times John, but a very interesting capture.
John Prior: Thanks Brian, I loved the feeling of neglect.
Great composition and texture, simple and really good smile
John Prior: Thanks Linda, yes it was Peter Greenaway's 1982 film that I mentioned smile

excellent color and textures. I like how it seems like the algae/mold on the wall seems to have grown from the post box.
John Prior: Thanks Otto, I didn't risk posting anything in the box smile
Wide range of colors that gives an outstanding result. Good composition. Regards.
