Woke up to a 6.7 and now a 6.8. However, there are only 21 votes cast, so I'm trying not to get too hopeful...

About the title: Crazing is a network of fine cracks on the surface of a material, for example in a glaze layer. Technically, this really is cracks, not crazing, but it reminded me of antique ceramics and things that I've seen crazed. It also had a double meaning, because this is taken at an abandoned building at Eastern State Mental Hospital.

That door is just like I remember it thirty eight years ago. Is Miss. Abby still there? If she is you would know by her screams.
What a character she was. I wish the faceplate was a bit lighter so I could see the detail.

Congratulations, Wendy. Great image. It's lovely how the density of paint cracks varies across different areas of the door, especially on the left third of the image.
