Drop And Gimme Ten - Or Eleven by 

I shot this in a city car park as I walked to my car late in the evening last week (January 2011) as the rain drenched Melbourne. (224 views on 16 June)

Another driver went past me, looking strangely at me as I stood there with my camera. He was probably wondering what on earth I could see in a steel girder and a concrete wall!

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F5.6, 1/60, ISO 800, focal length 125mm.
