Color Palette: Abandoned Billboard

There's something so interesting about abandoned billboards peeling with layers of color.  They tell a story of the history of advertisements they've held.  They are scattered across the landscape in fields, on sides of buildings, and along roadsides. But they are also a landscape of their own- hanging on to the layers of their own history.  I was drawn to the color palette of this lonely billboard photographed by the_mel on flickr. Cool steel greys provide the perfect backdrop for musky olives and streaks of rusty caramel.
