Weathered Peel

While drinking coffee this morning I was looking out on my deck thinking about the peeling paint;  how Nancy and I just painted this thing a little over a year ago and that it would have to be done again soon.
 I started to see some photographic possibilities so I got my camera and tripod out and stepped outside.   Lately, I have been experimenting with single lens photographs, meaning whatever lens I have on the camera or think I should use, right or wrong that is what I use.  Some days I have great results, others it's the scrap pile for the whole mess, however it does add add an element of challenge, that is kind of fun.  What do you think??
