Bent

    Newer Older

    Walk by the River Lee in Cork City and you'll come across vertical bars embedded in the river wall. Here's one that was bent out of shape by some force, possibly a long time ago. In the background is the Cork Opera House.
    The texture and grain of the bar appeals to me. It's not new and shiny and polished. It's old and worn and has a history.

      Cork's Excalibur?

      I'm not so sure about this picture: on the one hand, I really find the bar worth photographing it -- because "it's old and worn and has a history". I understand this idea and like it. On the other hand, the gray bar is -- at least on the monitor I'm currently -- using barely visible in front of the dark gray background of the opera house.

      I thought it was a bicycle in front of B&Q from the thumbnail. Good differential focussing, but I'd like to see it on a sunny day.

      A sunny day? This is Ireland - the last sunny day was in 1967 - and that's when the stories of global warming started! ;-)

      Nice! I guess this is what's meant by observation. This was taken about 5 seconds from my front door, and I never spotted the opportunity. )0:
