Artist's Description

That is the question. Whether ’tis a nonrepresentational composition of random shapes and colors or whether it is photography of real and solid objects. Actually, you could call this a concrete abstract, being a composite of two pictures that I took a few years ago of a rundown abandoned building. I believe they are both still in my RB portfolio … will have to check and will try to show them below. One was called Ruined Pink, and the other Concrete Bones, each one, I thought, was a poignant example of urban decay. However, as I seem to be my own best fan, nobody else was as captivated by these images as I was and they have just sat dormant for the past few years.

So we come to the present day, the first of November 2011, and I am still playing with new apps on my new machine, dredging out old images to spruce up. For some reason, I opened these two in HDRtist and decided to superimpose one on the other and, all of a sudden there was something that I thought might go somewhere.

Concrete Bones

Actually, Ruined Pink

was not the other part of this image, as I mistakenly thought. Turns out that when I was so besotted with this ruin, I posted a lot of pictures, ending with this one

Last Iteration, which has been retired for an astounding (to me, anyway) lack of interest, garnering only 37 view on its first time out. I retired it for a while and just now put it back up, simply for the sake of demonstrating the two components of this image.
