    • I do really enjoy abstract images. It was fun to see these railroad tracks at such different angles. Thank you, Yoshizen, for you nice words.

    • Thanks, Steve. Is it the colors in 2 and 7; the fact that the rust is a bit more pronounced, set off by the blue?

  9. Cool to see all those different angles. The takes I like best are the ones with the most color contrast, but most of all the ones with sharp foregounds and deeply receding backgrounds. Fine series!

    • Thanks so much, Tom. I really appreciate your comment. Once I started looking, I started to see angles and colors in the tracks that I hadn’t really noticed before. I guess that’s what happens when we spend time examining a subject close up!

  11. Beautiful abstracts. If I had to pick a favorite it would be #2.

    • I’m so glad you like the second one… I felt like I was going a bit out on a limb with that one, but there was something about that angle that really interested me.
