The Fading Forest

8-4-2010 (Alameda, Ca)

I found this amazing decrepit mural on a street corner in Alameda. in the San Francisco Bay Area. I thought it so amazingly beautiful that I wanted to document it, a little bit in the same way that an archeologist might document a large frieze from a temple.

    I like it and the colors are great! The wood showing through looks almost like it is part of the painting.
