The Magpie Mine revisited

By mrswoolybill
I photographed this cable drum many years ago, it was one of my first serious attempts at abstract composition.
I was glad to find that it is still there.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

That odd little horizontal thingy, half way up from the centre, is persistently drawing my eye. But I'm sending Alfred anyway because the rest of it is so good.

Thanks Alan. I reckoned that once I started removing odd bits from the frame I probably wouldn't know where to stop...

The wires seems to have become a part of the drum, no longer separated.

Superb work Moira. Something most of us would pass by and not see the potential.

Unless you have told it a cable drum, i would have taken some time to think or imagine what it is, strong lines and textures along with great tonal work makes it a superb abstract...Well Done...

Our U3A Photography group's challenge this summer is Beauty in the mundane, I have this one lined up...
Thanks again folks, and thanks to Somnath for the GEA. And I think you sum up what abstract is about for me, it needs lines not context.

Excellent subject matter and very well processed, Moira.
Your skill of abstract composition is still there too. Smile
