Around Here Week 30

Since I live in a city much of my inspiration comes from urban artifacts. Case in point is an iron grill like many found throughout my city. I like the heavy curves and the spool shaped links between the horizontal bars. The printing adds character, and the shadows cast in the drain are intriguing. I tried to get a better shot of the shadows, but the sun’s angle was wrong. Maybe I could expand the shadows and have them show behind an upright iron curtain.

  1. Don’t you think it’s interesting that the people who make metal grates actually seem concerned about a pleasing design?! This one is very attractive!

  2. Cool grill. Is there a date on it elsewhere? Thanks for pointing out the spools and the shadow. You really “look” at things when you look and you see so much!

  3. I know I don’t say much on most of these pix, but I am enjoying your series.
