This one came out of the camera just like this, with the exceptions of cropping and enlarging from Red Bubble. The view is through one circular hole then through two other holes, seeing a park behind the third hole. Get that? :-) Actually I was shooting my guide as she (EBmonster) shot me from the opposite side. I think I got the side with the better light. I think I got better of everything since she was shooting with a (gasp!) Canon and I was shooting with my beloved Nikons. (Canon makes great copiers, printers & FAX machines; Nikon makes great cameras. Hehehe!)

Anyway, details to follow cuz this location will give away part of the answer to the quiz on another upload. Details will follow…maybe. If you’re lucky.

OK, you’re lucky…

Shot outside Santa Cruz and you’re looking thru two side-by-side tinderboxes used for steam trains logging the forests of California’s coast. The trains were narrow gauge and the site is the location of the only narrow gauge rail line still in operation within the United States.

I’m a “scatter-focus” artist. ANYTHING may be here or roundabout my galleries. Expect nothing anywhere and you’ll always be OK. ;-)

    Love this, Lenny, it makes a great abstract would look great in any of the Abstract Groups. The light really is good and I love the greens and blues in the background. Fabulous shot.

  • Thank you very much, babe! Groups are getting picked even as I speak. ;-)

    Very abstract work. Very fun image.

  • Thank you. :-) Looking at it was a lot more fun once I opened it. It looked interesting when I shot it but nowhere near as fun as it is now.

    Loving the abstract! :D If I learn the “secret story” behind this it will only be a perk. :)

  • Thank you and you’ll learn it sooner than later, I suspect. ;-)

    i like the use of shooting thru two layers and using one as the blur region. Hmmm… so many shapes and perceptions.
