Since we posted our last abstract photo quite a while ago, we thought it was about time to give you this 'treatment'. We found this texture at - who would have thought - one of the local junk yards we visited yesterday. If you consider us freaks for spending a sunny Saturday afternoon among smelly piles of junk just to take photos, we honestly don't blame you.
The toning of this image reminds us a little of some sequences in Björk video 'Jóga' from the album 'Homogenic', which has computer animation sequences of her native country Iceland.
@eterisk: It's flaking paint on an old wooden door.
The funny things is that from looking at the picture I sometimes have this optical illusion where foreground and background are switched, peaks and valleys are reversed, so the texture looks like some organic tissue under the microscope... Sebastian @ 2006-May-8 11:27

This image is amazing. Not just the texture.
The light too. Could be flat yet just as easily could be almost like a lunar landscape. mooch @ 2006-May-9 11:44
This is an excellent abstract. The tone and color is magnificent! (Just like your last ablstract was!)
