Wow Scott, that is somehow so beautiful! so delicate. I do Art Textiles at school and this really inspires the organza dresses I am thinking of making. Thank you! x

January 15, 2011 at 9:00 am
That's absolutely beautiful! In its own way, but still. It sort of looks like art.
January 15, 2011 at 9:01 am
so incredibly painterly!
oooo…cool!! Looks like a real painting :D
January 15, 2011 at 9:05 am

This one is so good!!!! No people, wall talks for herself!
It's amazing how something natural usually thought of as disgusting can be so incredibly interesting and beautiful!

January 15, 2011 at 9:24 am
Those greens- swoon!
would look brilliant as a print.
January 15, 2011 at 9:25 am
This is beautiful. An abstract work of art created by nature.
Those colours..wow. Great to see the beauty of decay being captured! Nature amazes me every day!
January 15, 2011 at 9:26 am
Surprisingly, it's actually quite pretty.
January 15, 2011 at 9:30 am
any designer, print studio or graphic artist will find inspiration in this composition.
January 15, 2011 at 9:31 am
I couldn't recognize it's a photo or painting, and what it is for a while.. It's beautiful anyway.
January 15, 2011 at 9:33 am
Beautiful image. At first glance I thought it to be fabric.
I thought it was a painting by Rothko :)
January 15, 2011 at 9:34 am
Just brilliant! I suggest listening to Fennesz Black Sea while looking at this photograph. Lorenzo Cinotti
January 15, 2011 at 9:35 am

January 15, 2011 at 10:48 am
You have an eye for art, Scott! Moss is just naturally beautiful. I'd love to own a scarf that looked like this.
January 15, 2011 at 10:54 am
the colour is great.But for me as a civil engineer this makes my heart hurt.Mankind must take care of their creations.makes me think of any great Russian song performed by Dmitri Hvorostovsky. Weird
January 15, 2011 at 11:07 am
I would love to see you keep this up, maybe relating colors and architecture of the cities you travel to with the fashion present. The beautiful Italy is a great place to see that relationship. Excellent work!
January 15, 2011 at 11:11 am
hmmmm reminded my childhood in my granny's house the back wall used be like even in the summer…
January 15, 2011 at 11:14 am
I've been dreaming of fabrics like this lately. I can see this gathered up into a lovely frothy frock. Beautiful image.

January 15, 2011 at 12:01 pm
A great wall, but I miss someone well dressed in front of it.
January 15, 2011 at 12:09 pm
looks like some of the late works of Francis Bacon (the desert ones, or the fields)reminds me of rotchko also…
January 15, 2011 at 12:24 pm
I think everyone here would agree this would look absolutely beautiful as a dress. Great shot.
January 15, 2011 at 12:25 pm
It's nice to see a great shot of something a bit different every now and then! x
January 15, 2011 at 12:31 pm
Love the break out of the fashion theme! Very inspiring and refreshing in between. Looks almost like an abstract Richter or Cy Twombly. Fab!
January 15, 2011 at 12:38 pm
What a gorgeous shot. Wouldn't it be amazing to create a fabric out of this? Nature, everywhere, is so inspirational. http://thearcenciel.blogspot.com/

Whatever we have made, will not be undone but slowly nature works at correcting itself and that process is pure poetry.

I like how you've directed so many people's attention to some moss growing on a wall. Shows how beauty can be found everywhere.

for the people that think it's just a common wall, just know that the fact that it's "just a wall" is why it makes the photograph much more amazing.
a lot of times mundane, seemingly boring things are given live and character through photographs, and that is amazing. i love photographs that look like paintings without deliberate editing.

O.K., I know I should be inspired by this in an artistic/fashion sense, but since I am knee-deep in a basement renovation on my money-pit of a house, all I think when I see this is: crack in the foundation! moss growing on the wall! mildew! mold! OH NO!!!!!
January 16, 2011 at 5:56 pm
It look like a wall painting. it suits well to print n frame
January 16, 2011 at 7:23 pm

stunning. to the man who doesn't see it in this picture, i disagree. in america, this would be "fixed". painted over to be a "nice clean repaired wall". i don't see the beauty in that so anytime, anywhere i see a wall like this, i'm in awe of the beauty.
