There is unique beauty with growing old. There is character that only comes with age. The intricate textures and colors in this photo could only have resulted from the passing of time.
This is a photo of someone’s home. Our consumerist culture trains us to exclaim “What a piece of junk!” Yet, this home is a place where wonderful memories fill the rooms like playful ghosts. Children and grandchildren have giggled and played. Sick bodies have been nursed back to health. Broken hearts have been mended with compassion. People have whispered, “I love you” to each other. Inspiring stories of God and his people have been recounted with tremendous faith.
This is a home where the walls are painted in colors of love, made even more striking and vibrant over time.
This photo taken with a Nikon D40x in Azusa, CA. Post in Capture NX2.
