I don't think I could resist picking it off :)

Dagrun said...

Vet du hva, RuneE. Utrolig riktig sagt! Noen ganger er det akkurat det en kan og bør gjøre i livet! (og tøft bilde)

Aileni said...

I got into trouble picking paint off a gate when I was a child. I have conrolled my self since.

Dan said...

å slik går nå dagene...;-) er vel absolutt det ville skulle gjort en gang iblant, personlig har jeg gjort det de siste 9 mnd, etter å ha kjørt for hardt før det...

Dina said...

Artistic photo, funny thought.

John said...

Makes a better photo than watching it dry. Good close up.

Nu när du hittat flagorna måste du väl göra något åt det :)
Bättre på bild än i verkligheten :)

Bim said...

And quite a few layers of it...we had lead paint in our house, so I'm highly suspicios of paint flakes :)

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

Ser du har avslappende dager :) Stilig utsnitt du har tatt her!

VALKYRIEN said...

Smiler fra øre til øre her, og tenker på den reklamen om mannen som jobber med å se maling tørke! Her har du virkelig laget en egen vri på den! (vet jo ikke om du har sett den) Stilig bilde og ord til ettertanke faktisk. Man skal ta det litt med ro av og til. :)

Bim said...

Yes, your quite right: lead paint has been forbidden for many years, now. But our house was built in the 17th century. So when we restored it we found that the deepest layers were full of lead. And, yes, it got removed very carefully.

Uroskråka her hadde nok ikke kunne helt latt vær... pirke, skrape og legge på ny, maur i blodet vet du .-))

u made something so ordinary into something beautiful through photography.

As a very young toddler, our toilet was outside, walls painted with emulsion, with damp it used to flake, Me, for devilment used to pick it off.

Grand photo Rune, which brought back kiddie memories.

Susan said...

Exceptional photo. I love the texture and fine detail. I put my hand up to my computer screen in an attempt to pick away at the layers of paint. ;)) Well done, my friend.

I also took a wee stroll through your other blogs and what a beautiful collection of photos. You are very talented! Thanks for sharing.

The minutiae of life.

Sistertex said...

An 'beauty in an unexpected place' photo to be sure.

James said...

Rune you have such an amazing way of turning simple things into wonderful photos.

Carver said...

I never would have thought paint peeling would make a great shot but it sure does here. Love the caption.

~Just me again~ said...

cool idea, I love pulling peeling paint ;)

Vita Stunder said...

Jag gillar den här bilden.
Enkelt och slående vackert!

Marie Höglund said...

Att flagnande färg kan bli så vackert :-)

Tom said...

At times I recall thinking something I was doing was 'Like watching paint dry'... I thought that must have been bad... but to then watch it peel itself back off... :O) thats something else altogether..
A great image ..

If you get time nip over and meet Ammon Wrigley then read his poem The Homestead

You should have left the people try to guess what it was..I'm sure noone could have found the right answer!
If you want to play, there's a little tag "on the shore"..( You're not obliged to pass, or to use 7 things, I know you don't like it.Ü)

Petunia said...

Du har både glimt i øyet og øyne for gode motiv, Rune! bildet er perfekt!

Jeg er med for første gang på Monochrome weekly med et bilde. Jeg vet ikke om det fyller kriteriene for denne temabloggen, men da håper jeg du gi meg beskjed.

Interesting - looks a bit like a mollusk in the middle.

Dina ... UK said...

Very fascinating image....

Liz said...

Very tempting to pick at it!

PERBS said...

I thought it was peeling paint at first glance BUT then I thought it had to be something else. My mind conjured up some type of bug or insect where the vertical paint is peeling in an "oval" shape. I still can't believe it is just paint. I bet you would never have taken that photo with a regular camera where you had to get it developed and pay for the roll of prints. Ü

Your EG Tour Guide said...

You made me smile, Rune. Watching paint flake off sounds very appealing. ;-)

Field of View said...

Interesting...nice shot !

: )

RogerB said...

A beautiful macro!

napaboaniya said...

The texture is perfect and looks really good in B&W :)

BJ Roan said...

I like the focus on the peel. Very creative thinking!

Daryl said...

So, is it more exciting to watch paint dry or peel off? Fun shot.

Greyscale Territory said...

In monochrome, this simple feature of painted life becomes quite artistic!

Dragonstar said...

Perfect shot! I love the way you've focussed on the edge of the flake.

AKO said...

Ett motiv som gör sig bra i svartvitt och med kort skärpedjup. Nog blir man sugen på att dra i färgflagan... :)

AVCr8teur said...

I guess this takes longer than watching water boil. Nice image to get the point across.
