the angled approach, reminds me of 1910's graphic artists (my favourite period for such work) Smile

Interesting shots Bill and I like the mazelike qualities of #2 and #3. I assume these are genuine 3d rather than the very clever paintwork we saw frequently in Austria

ANITO - a tagalog(filipino) word meaning "a pagan god". Powerful abstract Bill....

Great bit of abstract Bill, wondered if it was a Manitou but I think its the wrong colour.

Well spotted and captured.

The term Manitou itself refers to the concept of one aspect of the interconnection and balance of nature/life, much as you have connected with this machine Bill.
I prefer the abstract nature of versions 2 and 3 but this is striking with its red and cream livery.

Good abstract takes here Bill of ''simple'' lettering.Made all the more interesting with them being raised for the 3D effect.A nice little edging too with the rust/dust.Good graphic images here.

I like the contrast of colors they work so well. Darn good bit of detail too, worth the large view!!

Funny the things we spot whilst out with the cameras, people look at us sometimes and think we are mad, but this is a great shot, lovely colours and detail, great contrast.

Nicely taken.

Version 2 without a clue as to why that I can put in words.

This caught my eye Bill as my brother-in-law is the Manitou distributor for his area in the borders, fine collection of images, good colour impact, Adrian
