A few more pictures from the construction site.

Hose in a rusty wheelbarrow. Now that’s Art!

The Bucket Of Peril graveyard.

Still in their Perilous prime, innocent of the grim fate that awaits them.

    So many Buckets of Peril on the same route… no wonder they fight.

    Interesting, but I’m missing the point of focus. When I look at “junk” lying around, I think of Picaso when he took a simple bicycle saddle and handlebars and arranged them to look like a bull’s head with horns.

    I always look to see a simple object jutaposed to resemble something entirely different..make the mind see it as something in totally different way that what one would normally see it.

    Also, Ansel Adams is a very good study for landscape photography. I remember reading on one shot it took a number of years before the conditions…place, time, day, subject…were what he was looking for and he made a single photo that turns out fantastic! He lived a long life and took many photographs. He had the time and patience to wait to capture the subject at a precise moment in time that would be remembered forever.

    Good photography just doesn’t happen. The photographer has to be able to see the shot he wants and wait for the opportunity to present itself.

    By the way, I did enjoy the “black and whites”!!! B&W photos with the help of colored filters is much more powerful than color!

    Thanks. I’m pretty much a seat-of-the-pants photographer, though – I’m not looking for anything in particular, so much as trying to discover interesting shapes and compositions hidden in the mundane.

    Generally, if I don’t see it on the spot, the chances of my going back and getting it are pretty slim (I tried one recently, only to discovered that the sun had shifted enough in 8 days to make it utterly impossible).

    I like the way you posted these photos. The black and whites, then the color explosion. Cool!
