More often than not, when I’m out running around and I see something I want to come back and take pictures of, for one reason or another, it doesn’t work out.
It can be the colors of leaves during autumn and later that same day wind or rain comes through and wipes them out, or maybe a colorful sunset which disappears in seconds. Like I said, more often than not, it doesn’t work out to come back (which is why it would be good if I started carrying my camera around with me more often).
So all of that being said, the above picture and all of the small pieces of duct tape on a wall was one of the few things where it did work out. Driving through the Chinatown neighborhood in Chicago, I saw the duct tape covering a wall as I was driving through an intersection. For obvious reason I couldn’t stop at the time, but a couple of days later I made it back and got the shot I was looking for.
I’m not sure of the origins of the tape or even the purpose, but I think they’re certainly interesting enough to grab a picture of.
