I'm sure the viewers will not understand the title in combination with the picture. So here's the story:

A wall around the garden, constructed in 1920, had several owners over the years and is now almost ready for being demolished.
Each owner covered up signs of the previous one, leaving several layers of cement, paint,...
In a way this wall tells the stories of those previous owners: how they treated him, what materials and colors did they like, etc....
Now its time for him to lay down and make place for a new preserver of the owners privacy.
But before that moment arrives: a tribute to this story teller.

Aged, decayed, and clinging to live and renew. Thank you for a unique, yet simply complete, image of our lives.
