No, I don’t see this as a wasteland. I like the image. Soft coloring – simple, plain maybe but not stark. It’s a postcard depicting Richland Washington, no date. But it’s actually part of the Hanford site where plutonium was produced for use in the atomic bomb. So in a way it has sinister overtones given the terrible destruction caused by atomic weapons. We live in the nuclear age, alas.
But my just completed knit scarf would still be useful

Not a vintage postcard – just a pleasing image – maybe an inspiration for a tapestry or a painting.
I was quite taken by this article in a recent issue of the New York Times What unusual coloring. I loved the photo with the contesting shades of light and dark. I saved it for future inspiration – a writing theme or something in textiles.
