365-306 Metal Fatigue

Just a nod to one of my favorite guitarists and albums: Allan Holdsworth

Since I was a bit tired when I got off of work today, I wanted to find something to shoot on my way back to my hotel instead of going out later. The sun was about to set and the strong sidelight was great but in order to take advantage of it I had to work quick. Well, I wasn’t quick enough. I thought I would swing through an old industrial area hoping to find some old buildings or abstracts but the road I first took didn’t end up where I thought. It was a dead end. By the time I found my way to where I wanted to be the sun was almost set. So much for dramatic light. I was near this old water tower, which I had shot previously for a 365 (365-227) but decided to shoot it at a different angle this time. This is your standard “shot from below dramatic angle shot”. Nothing original but I like the symmetry which turned out rather well. I’m usually sloppy on details like that! I was going to do a color shot but I thought I would try a split-tone B&W treatment instead, which I think adds a little more drama. Pentax K20D, DA17-70.

    This is great! Interesting to see this perspective on an old water tower. I like the split-tone bw.

    I really, really like this. there is such power in this, and the lines and texture. And the split tone b&w is just gorgeous. I seriously love this one! 🙂
