On the harbour front in Long Beach, CA. A handrail against the concrete in the early morning sun.

In particular, I noticed the weird optical illusion of the image rotating to the right - but the grid says those lines on the wall are straight. Brains do strange things Smile (well, at least mine does.......)

Comments and criticism of allv arieties more than welcome.

A strong graphic image which does indeed look to be rotating to the right. Would it look even stronger in BW I wonder?

I really like this. Great abstract image - shadows, lines and curves. Well spotted. For what it's worth, I'd stick with the colour version...

Bold graphic lines make a well seen abstract. Think the colour version just has the edge for interest.

Thansk for the comments people.

And thanks Nick for the mod, and Dave for the suggestion. I had contemplated a B+W version - and I do like yours Nick. But I think the warmth of the concrete (?!) adds something here.
