Faded Glory

Faded Mural, Folly Beach, SC  © Doug Hickok


On the side of a restaurant on Folly Beach is a fading mural of famous Hollywood stars from yesteryear. This image is a detail of its weathered wood surface showing the collar and shoulders of one of these famous stars. Who could this be? This weekend I'll reveal the whole picture of this person in case your curiosity has been piqued.

  9. Hollywood in Folly Beach?
    Should replace the "Beach" in Folly Beach to Folly Wood to give the restaurant a nice rhyming name!
    Jolly Follywood - that'd make a good name! Ha ha...

  11. You caught this probably quite plain mural in its noblest moment, when it is fading away with the help of the weathered wood. Now I am curious to know who is fading...

  12. This detail is quite compelling - most probably a better shot than a wider view with the faces visible.

  16. Works beautifully with it's faded, splintered texture...I don't think that it matters - why not keep it as a sweet mystery!

  17. That's an excellent picture (all these colors and textures).

  18. I agree with Harry. All the same I will guess - it is not Tarzan, as he wouldn't allow the cat to scratch him like that :-)
