Photoessay: Abstracts in metal

In an earlier photoessay, I covered some of what goes on at a shipyard; today’s coda represents the outtakes that didn’t make it into the final deliverable for the client, but I shot as part of my body of personal work. There’s just so much abstract geometry and texture going on with the interplay of parts, metals, surfaces and finishes at the yard it’s impossible to ignore; I’m pretty sure some of these would make rather interesting large prints.

This set was shot with a Panasonic TZ3.

    And here colour is wonderful — so subtle and so beautiful.

  2. I found these shots very interesting. Given that the time of exposure for these shots are +5 years ago, that little camera is going for $25 new on Amazon. But amazing results for the less than the cost of a filter on one today’s DSLRs.

    • Thanks Ken. I’ve made some reasonably large (20×30″) prints from some of the images in the series; whilst they obviously aren’t great at nose-viewing distances, they’re surprisingly good considering the tool.
