Peeling Paint

I am always amazed at how different the colors of buildings are throughout the United States.  Depending on where you are the colors, as well as the materials used, can vary greatly.  In both Miami and Key West I was entranced by the bright blues, yellows, pinks and greens of their architecture on everything from mega hotels to individual homes.  Those colors on buildings probably would not fly here in the Midwest.

In the more expensive parts of Key West the homes were just stunning and in pristine condition while on and around Duval Street they were – as you can see – less so.  But even though in need of some scraping and repainting, the colors still stood out.  By the way…can you find the discarded bandage in one of these images?

    I found it on a yellow stair. Love the colors and textures.

    Alfred Hitchcock always made stairs scary. Even with a bandage on the edge of a step with pealing yellow paint, stairs with yellow and pink just can’t be scary. I love the photos.

  4. The yellow stairs are great. The way you’ve composed this image the stairs have a illusionary feeling.

  5. I think it is because of all the sun they get – bright, bright light and all.

    Love the pink stairs the most… maybe because of the band aid on the yellow stairs…
    …but seriously the pink stairs kind of play with my eyes. and they look like they are pixilated.(sp) Very cool!

  7. I’m not sure if my reply made it, but I mentioned that the only place that I believe compares to the Keys is New Orleans.
