Under the radar

I am always attracted to and struck by the beauty of object with great patina, markings of time and people passed by. Perhaps it’s the patina itself I love so much and not even the object- is that possible? (I’m convinced that certain things I own, I do so BECAUSE they’re old and worn and not so much for the object itself which sometimes is quite ordinary).

Whatever it is, I always find wear and tear to be beautiful and somehow poetic. The image above is an example, which I found at the back of a second hand dresser. “Flying under the radar”, I believe IT is was the show stopper, more beautiful than the dresser it was attached to.

I have often wished to buy only the back of pieces of furniture but no one is ever willing to sell only the back… sigh…

    It is lovely and very interesting. You should collect photos of these “behind the scenes” discoveries.

      Thank you and nice idea…. not the beauty within but behind 🙂
