....waiting to get back to work.
Great detail and B&W. Love the Point of Focus.
Larry Bliss: Thank you, Astrid...
Yup. I could do that! smile
Larry Bliss: Are you feeling cranky today? smile
A very fine one it is too Larry
Larry Bliss: Thank you, Bill...
A very masculine composition Larry. Sense of the vertical and horizontal makes for a very steady scene at rest.
Larry Bliss: I wasn't aware that composition is gendered... smile Thanks for the good words...

Very important, I'm sure... ummm.. for cranking things. Takes out the manual lifting, I guess.
Larry Bliss: Cranks are very cool for that...

Love all the geometric shapes, Larry. Your shots always make me look at every day things far more closely.

It looks an interesting piece of machinery, I like your B&W treatment
Larry Bliss: Thank you, Anne. The whole construction site is interesting.
It's probably no crankier than any other smile
Larry Bliss: SmOL -- Smiling Out Loud...
It looks like a bird with a broken beak! smile
Larry Bliss: so it does... smile
B&W always works for shots like this, it helps focus on the mechanical part
Larry Bliss: There are a lot of uses for black and white...
Again... something I might not have noticed on a walk. Good one.
Larry Bliss: Gotta walk on the wild side... smile
