Vein with Needles



This is a follow-up to the Concrete Vein post, and is on the same concrete cross-section of the Gonzales Observatory, but a much more delicate vein.

I like how the pine needles and tiny plant make  this seem like some mountain ledge in the distance.

It’s another one for the concrete-abstractionists.

    • Its a thing now. According to a comment on my earlier post, someone noticed and liked that ‘abstract’ and ‘concrete’ were adjacent tags. I liked that too, though I had not noticed till it was brought to my attention.


    • Hi Katherine. What you are thinking might be flaking, is the bedrock upon which the observatory is built. This bit of concrete holds up the walkway around the perimeter of the observatory – yesterday’s shot is taken from this location. Thanks for your comments about the composition, this image is quite heavily cropped to get a composition that I liked.
