The living-room floor of my brother's house in mid-Wales. Only minimal adjustment of the mid-tones in Levels has revealed some amazing colour.

Lovely tiles, lucky brother! Wonderfully observed, as always, and shooting on the diagonal was inspirational. It totally makes this. Regards. Bob

I like this Bill. I get strange looks when I take this type of image eg Yesterday I was taking shots of a rather nice Hedge !!!!

My brother in law has similar tiles in his kitchen Bill,but I never thought of taking a pic !!
Perhaps it is best.He thought I had a screw loose taking a pic of his rusty padlock and hasp on his garage door !!
Good shot.

YUM!! I love a good bit of flooring, especially on an angle (you may remember my Herculaneum and Pompeii floors?), you've ticked all the right boxes for me with this one Bill. Super textures and tones.

Well the blue ones in the centre might be Quary tiles Bill, but the others look like Chinese Slate to me. We have them in our Conservatory, and all the different colours in any light, look just stunning. Well I might be wrong, but they're certainly not Welsh Slate Smile

A superb abstract image Bill, I never knew the Lifesnapper was such an expert on tiles, does he work at B&Q or Topps Tiles?

As ever Bill the observant eye spots the opportunity and the eye and hand get the composition and colour right!

Wonderful colours in the floor tiles Bill, A closer view might tell more about the viewer, especially after consuming a bottle of whisky?
