Parallels

Parallels

Same view as “View across the tracks” with a focus now on the tracks.  Strong iron rails that team with the wooden beams of the former station, the pavement between them, and the gravel under the tracks all making a series of parallels.  I carried over the black and white effect , but brought back the warm rusty tones of the second set of rails as they cut across the scene.

Grate lines

Grate lines

As we packed up from our perch near the mountain tops where we photographed the sunrise, I noticed a water drain in the parking lot next to my Jeep.  It was clear, only a few feet deep to the concrete floor of the drain.  Through the parallel bars of the metal grate I saw an abstract image composition from the blurred lines of the grate and a focused field of wonderful patterns, colors and textures beneath.
