Side view of the loading dock of a chemical plant. When I got home and saw this shot in my computer I couldn’t for the life of me think what it was initially!! It always amazes me how much color and beauty can be found in some very mundane things or places in our environment. Nikon D90 52mm 1/320s f/9 handheld.

I love macro abstract work of rejected and neglected items in our society, especially rusty old dumpsters (skips) around the back of buildings, battered boats up on dry dock, rotting wood, bark of trees, and so on. Im fascinated by the color and texture that appears with a macro lens. I do almost no post-processing after taking the shot.

    Whoa – way bigger scale than I’m used to with your art Marguerite but it works beautifully – another fascinating and beautiful abstract – all these hidden treasures your eye is attuned to.

  • Glad you like it – yes its a bit different because the colors are more defined.

    You & your bloomin’ good eye. I laughed when I read that you couldn’t place it at first; have been there myself. A great composition with striking colors & forms. Yep, that’s everyday life. Most people never see it. Thanks for pulling it all into focus for the rest of us!

  • Thanks so much Artwhiz. Im touched by your enthusiastic response. Yes, so much color and design and beauty is missed because we dont take the time to search it out.
