The other facade was also (correctly) painted over. If I were to venture a guess, it's because it was unclear whether only one or both ends were to be painted.

The whole piece, in all its glory. This shot is primarily intended for documentary purposes and is a 185 megapixel image that I assembled from five composite images. It is the first time I do a composite of composites, and this is the so far biggest image I've produced. Since the whole wall couldn't be seen from one spot, I moved between five different locations. The result is that some items (like the black column in the middle) are seen from both left and right, and nothing above the wall matches; as well as nothing surrounding the entrance to the youth club. I've not spent any time trying to get those bits to fit - I figure you're here for the piece and nothing else. The worst bit is the part behind the basketball basket. I stuck the camera in below the basket and then warped the resulting image into place, but at the top of the space where the basket used to be the image underwent considerable distortion. The sky is from a photo taken in Husby. The sky was horribly overexposed in the original, and I thought I would just cut it away - but that didn't work; the big empty area was too distracting. So I figured I might as well put some sky in there. It is a poor comp job, I know. But it's not the point of this image.

This is the state of most of the paint. Hopefully the piece will last another 23 years, at least!
