Focus on Life - Week 45

Wow, week 45! Oh my...

This week's prompt caused some consternation: Industrial Photography - gulp!

Grantham is a small market town, with almost no industry - especially where we live, so what to do??

Thankfully, on my way into town, I pass a small food factory, hidden behind trees and shrubs...

.

... and using all the zoom my wee camera can manage, I took this close up of the top of the factory.


I love the contrast between the smooth curves of the pipes and the straight lines of the railings and the corrugated factory sides.

Plus, the sun was shining, even though it was bitterly cold!

How I suffer for my art ;)

PS Thank you for visiting last week! I'm so sorry I didn't return the compliment :( I've started a course of hydrotherapy, and it just wipes me out for days on end! Then, a poorly boy, a husband away, Dad visiting to help out... took away any spare energy and computer time. I will try and visit this week, but I can't promise - sorry!

Think your pipes look way more industrial than my fishing paraphenalia! I like your pipes very 'curvey'!

I like the curve of that big pipe. Great picture.

I struggled under similar constraints, Claire! Love your find, and the textural feel to it. Hope you're feeling better soon!

Love the lines you found.

Consternation is a good way to describe this week's tricky topic. But you did a terrific job. I like the distant shot as well - how the factory is framed among the trees. Very nice that your Dad came to assist. Hope you are feeling better this week!

A great photo! I live in a very very small town and really struggled with this challenge. I'm not even sure my photos qualify as industrial but I had to put something up.
Sounds like you had a busy week. I hope you get some quality rest this weekend!

Great photos Claire. I hope you feel better soon.

I feel for you Claire....Life is really getting in the way these days....sending hugs to lift the spirits. I love the picture...no one would know it was cold there. But I bet those pipes would be cold if you touched them. Great post. Good luck.

Very cool. I don't get off my little farm to find things like that.

Good luck with your course

Shel said...

Yep - great shots for sure! I do like all the different lines,...an I do hope you're feeling/doing better, health-wise, too! :-)

Lots of texture in your photo! Good one.

Good job, it's funny what lengths us artists will go through to get a good shot!
