Patterns on a Wall

The start for this image (above) is a photo of a peeling stucco wall (below). I photographed the portion of a wall in the late afternoon of a recent Sunday on a walk around my neighborhood in a brief respite from being Mr. Mom. The combination of the peeling stucco and the shadows on it reminded me of Japanese Kanji characters.

Taking the original photo, I fooled around in Photoshop with layers, channels, and masking to come up with the abstraction above.

Here’s the original photo:
