loooooove the peeling paint.

Donna said...

before I even saw the attribution I knew it was you Ahab! The composition, as usual is killer.

That's funny, what Donna said really resonated with me -- I knew this was an ahab shot before I looked at the tags.

And happy I was to see that.

I keep coming back to this. It's magnetic.

Thanks, everybody.

I was afraid this might be too static, like a lot of my stuff. But that peachey/orangey color against the red is almost electric, isn't it? And the mottled blue is a perfect tonic note. It's a nice punch of color out of, of all places, an industrial ruin in this wintry hellhole of NE PA.

I liked what Donna said too, as far as each of us having a distinct style. Tom overlaps with Generik a bit (probably mnostly because you both shoot SF and Western mountains) and with me a bit (esp when he came East), but G and I are farther apart. I can usually tell before confirming whose shot I'm looking at. I wonder if we'll converge somewhat over time, from mutual influence?

Egad -- multiculturalism!
