Peeling paint

Apart from piles of food and markets, my other favourite photographic subject is, wait for it, peeling, cracking, layered paint!!!

Whether it’s a crumbling wall, a decrepit window or a forgotten door, the layers of weathered paint beckon to me.

Revealing intricate patterns, cracks and fissures, a multitude of colours and layers of detail.

Here’s just a few tasty doors and windows from our Rhodes trip.

You just want to peek in windows and peer into the courtyards. And I don’t just limit my fascination to doors and windows, I’ll accept chairs too!

How fascinating is this little homestead? From the ramshackle pot plants, the wonky shutters or the contrasting lemon and blue paintwork there’s a multitude of interesting details to spot.


I love the way that the paint is gradually being weathered away to reveal the many different colours and textures.

Loving these orange and blue shades on derelict doors in Symi.

As well as the pale lemon and blues on these twin windows.
