I love finding stuff like this! What is it? Whatever you want it to be…

All comments welcome!
Is this a composite: No
Canon 5D (definitely from the archives), 24-70 at 51, ISO 320, f/9.5, 1/125. Minimal processing in LR, slight cloning in PS. Cropped from the right side. No filters, not even NR.
Ditto paint and rust. I love the lichen though. It’s such a resilient organism and one even more complex than we originally thought. They (and it really is a they at the molecular level) colonize things first and are the precursors of any environment. Like an advance team, lichens can cling to almost any surface and begin the process of introducing organic material that eventually creates soil which other plants and fungi can then adapt to. It’s amazing.
Anyway…I digress. IMO a touch more texture or clarity would be nice, but the softness is also interesting as an opposing element to the rough, inorganic feel.
