Image rotated 90 degrees clockwise, with further adjustments to line up on the right. Imported with Adobe Camera Raw. Processed with NIK CEP.

This housing sits, now apparently not "housing" anything, at a dock still used by local fisherman, with various other gear still in use. With that opening at the bottom, perhaps it once housed a pulley system for raising/moving crates of fish etc.

I don't know if its function required that undulating shape where the two halves joined. Obviously there had to be room to place the four bolts, but I like to think the individual manufacturing it was an artist, getting some extra enjoyment from carrying out this task.

Taken on one of my first outings with the Sony Alpha a7. I'm loving the detail I can capture. The low late afternoon light, just a few days after the winter solstice, was very special.

Congratulations, sweetie, on making the juried selections. You know I think it's a wonderful image, and redolent of the essence of Hans Arp, but let me say it again :-) Mwah!

one thumb = top ten & hang on my wall anytime.
The photograph actually feels like a sculpture; more than it does a photograph. Beautiful tones and shapes, parts and whole in a lovely harmony. Thank you.

I see it! Got a chuckle out of me too. A fully approved DPC nude! No risk of a DQ for indecency here!

Nice photo, great texture and lighting on whatever object this is... A great Art entry!
