I did something today that I haven’t done in a long time. Too long probably. I took a lot of really simple photographs. I looked for color and texture and nothing more. It became a game to see how many different hues I could find in Hue. I love how across Vietnam you can almost tell a building’s age by the number of coats of paint it has on its sides. Like rings on a tree. They peel back and expose years and years. Mold grows. Vines grow. Lazy brush strokes become a kind of art in their own right. I stopped and looked around and it was like living in a rainbow. And it was nice.
