More! I went back to the City today to the same alley south of Market and made more images. Working against me today was the sun! Hey, the sun came out in the Bay Area! Lots to celebrate, but not the best photography conditions, so I popped on my polarizer. One of these days soon, I'll post a photo of the original scene. I had forgotten just what a mundane situation is was originally, who would have thought that it could generate such amazing closeups? Anyway, I am loving this little detour from my usual path, and hope you are as well!

The detail you are isolating is very interesting. I would love to see the whole scene for comparison.

A great shot. The sweep of the painted line and the layers of textures are very beautiful.

Call me Roszak (sic) but I see a serpent with mean teeth and mean and nasty growl getting ready to BITE! I like this one :-)

These are really expressive and beautiful in a gritty and great way! I love all the textures, and I am enjoying the way your vision is coming through in the way you choose to frame the larger scene! Fantastic job!
