Progress?


A pile of drainage pipes at a construction site presented me with a unique opportunity to photograph this newly excavated stone wall. As the city grows outward more and more natural areas disappear under the asphalt and concrete of restaurants, motels, stores, and other nation wide franchised businesses. As the mega businesses expand the unique character of the area is lost forever.

Inventive framing, Salty. I like all the textures and especially the large fissure in the wall. Interesting tones.

Good shot.

Nice framing. I think it would have been just ordinary without the round frame of the pipe.

Yep, progress is two-edged. Your photo says it very well too.
