It's the shadows that makes this one.

I just looked at the thumb in the gallery & knew this was a Woolybill. Smile

Nice observation, & something that I'm sure 99.9% of us would simply have walked past. The shadows make an interesting composition, which would have been rather flat without them.

I love this! I'd never have seen this. The positioning of the shadows is just right, nicely separated, and the whole image is very well composed, too.

Now where would you get a plastered wall on a ferry? I'm just trying to imagine where these taps would be. Lovely shot - just my sort of thing.

Good afternoon Bill, Oh I love this, the simplicity of the composition and the textures. One like Moira's that IMHO would look great large on a wall, very well spotted and taken.

Funnily enough Bill,I was taking a couple of shots of my tap in the back garden last night.Not much cope however as I needed a strong shadow like your ones.
Good shot.

Envious of this image!

Nicely composed, and great shodows Bill. Pitty you didn't turn one of them on slightly, just to get a bit drippy Smile

This one reminds me of Wolfgang Tillmans. Making the banal beautiful. Nicely done.

If I may say, very much two taps. An amazingly different couple of ot so mundane objects.

Well said - but I wonder just what would have happened if you HAD turned one of them on!
