Rediscovered Negatives: Los Colores de Coahuila

Piedras Negras, Coahuila, March 2000

This photograph is from one of my first excursions into Coahuila, in the border city of Piedras Negras.  It incorporates two of my favorite subject matters for photography: Peeling paint and telephone lines.  This mural advertisement was found on the side of an abandoned car repair garage, and if you look closely, you can make out that it is for Castrol GT motor oil. I think.
