I don’t have much to say about this shot other than that it’s one that I took on one of my lunchtime rambles in around where I work. Part of where I work is a converted mill, that backs onto a semi-industrial area of town, and there are many small alleys, cobbled streets, and generally interesting buildings and things that are worth taking a photograph of. This is a vent for the central heating system of what was once a small shop. As best I can tell it’s no longer used, and I think this is probably why the vent is so corroded. I’m not sure that it has too much artistic merit, but I quite like the abstract quality and colours, so thought I’d put it up.
And in case you’re interested, I’ve added another archive page to this site that you can access by clicking the thumbnails link in the navigation bar. Each entry on this site uses three images, the main image (normally 750 x 525px), a smaller 200 x 150px image for the comment description and the main archive page, and some smaller 75 x 75px (cropped) images that appear at the bottom of that page (to link through to older images). The new page simply puts all these smaller images (for all the entries) on one page – which might be useful if you want a quick overview or are looking for an image that you previously viewed.
Oh, and I’ve also added a button to the comments/notes pop-up that links to my comments feed. If you’d like to keep track of who comments on which images you can subscribe to this feed in addition to the main site feed. The comments feed keeps track of the last fifteen commented images, whereas the main news feed is simply updated each time I add an entry to the site.
And finally, if you haven’t come across it yet, check out the little stories section of two-muses.com. While my descriptions/notes tend to focus on either the where, why or how I took/processed a shot, the ‘little stories’ section at two-muses accompanies each photograph with a story – all of which are well written, and all of which add an interesting dimension to the photograph in question.
