Really enjoying these photographs! Is the bottom image a street sweeper brush, by any chance? Thanks so much for sharing.
K -- Good eye! It's actually two different sweeper brushes left in the city's dump pile where old equipment goes to die. And old photographers who need something to photograph.
Well, you make items in the dump look beautiful.
I love these rusty old things you find to photograph. Since the item itself usually isn't a thing of beauty, the photographer is forced to use lines, textures and shadows to make the picture interesting.Good job.
Especially loved the sweeper photo. The blue makes it...along with the way you framed the shot. I really enjoy the way you see the subject matter.
Jeez, what's with the sweeper photo? Maybe I'm onto something, a new genre in the photographic arts. Due to the extraordinary demand for such images, I'm adding one more to my portfolio: ta-da! Sweeper photo #2. Thanks for the wonderful feedback.
I thought the sweeper was a blue porcupine. And maybe it's that splash of color that grabbed us all, since we're all color-hungry here in this white winter.
A blue porcupine? Man, Cheryl, the cold is making you hallucinate!
