Photographer's Note

CHECK THE WORKSHOP FOLKS...ITS MUCH IMPROVED THANKS TO COMMENTS FROM MANNY AND OLLI.

I promised Olli some rust. How about 100 feet of it all over the outside and inside of a steel pipe!? I found a collection of huge steel pipes lying along side the road across from an oil distribution company in the heart of the industrial area in the City of Richmond. I took photos of the outside of pipes and climbed into one to take photos of the sides and the top, all of which will likely appear at some time in the future. One hundred feet of rust Yitzhak, can you believe it?

The composition I arrived at came clear to me as I worked with the image in Photoshop. I recognize that it looks more like an abstract construction than a photograph of a steel pipe, but here you have it. I merely cropped the pipe at the middle of its circumference, sharpened, adjusted levels and placed the black border around it. We could call it an ode to a rusted pipe, or Olli's "Pipe Dream."
