Block title


The blue brick Delta Lumber building with overgrown fence and railroad tracks, belonging to the family of bluesman Charlie Musselwhite. I love the way the paint , once bluer than the Mississippi sky, has aged toward that color and is now nearly indistinguishable from it. Our attempts to honor natural beauty are noble ones, even when they are imperfect. Digital color photograph by American abstract realist jo Brown, taken in Clarksdale, MS, 2012; edited 2015.
