Good day to you all at ePz

Thank you all so very much for your great comments and votes following my 'Tears' upload from the heating duct yesterday.

Todays image is a little random because I don't really know why I took it. It does however fit the Shadow Saturday theme.

I hope that you all have a great day, for me not sure what I am going to be getting up to. Probably a lot of rest as I am off to Twickenham tomorrow to watch England take on Wales in the Rugby.

Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin

Intriguing. This moves from grey to blue (blue skies implied at the end of the tunnels?), with hints of blue in the foreground walls as transition. I like that strong diagonal shaft of light on the floor, and the way the diagonals hit the top corners.

"Todays image is a little random because I don't really know why I took it."

Why not Nathan? There are lots of interesting colours, shapes, lines and shadows in this and there is plenty room for the prosaic as well as the pretty on this site.

I like this because it leaves me wondering what is up there around the corner. Muted colour & concrete & surprisingly little graffiti. Pleasing shapes & shadows.
Well spotted I say

The little alley looks intriguing and I love the DOF and those tinges of blues.
With or without the f/g shaft of light this is a winner.

The lack of colours other than the blue and the grey of the concrete look at first like selective colouring, Nathan.
There's a strong sense of being drawn into the image by the distant blue, but also a coldness that makes one hesitate.

A very well seen image whatever, and that Blue certainly hits the spot.

Good portrayal of urban decay. Strong lines lead you to the blue at the end of the alley.
