Title • carpet geometry

After the ‘gentleness’ of yesterday’s entry (which, by the way, if you’re a regular visitor I’d like you to take a look at), I thought I’d go with something a bit more dramatic/harsh today. This is one I took about ten days ago, and I didn’t post it at the time as I thought I had better things to put up.

That said, it’s grown on me, and I now quite like its regular angularity … and it does make a pronounced change from yesterday.

And in case you’re wondering; it’s one of those large doormats that you find in corporate buildings (the ones with metal strips wth nylon(?) brushes in between) surrounded by various different bits of carpet. The image is a reasonably straight shot but the contrast and saturation were increased by the use of an unblurred duplicate layer set to overlay mode, and a reasonably strong Curves adjustment.
