Ghost paint

My love of ghost signs has me scanning any brick wall for traces of paint. Often there are fascinating or beautiful traces which are well worth a photograph, even though they don't fit the 'ghost sign' definition.*

Now those strays have a home on flickr, where l'habitant has established a group for them. It's lovely to browse through - and a new excuse to take even more photographs!

* The ghost signs website defines these as 'remains of advertising that was once painted by hand onto the brickwork of buildings.'
