"Chez Mondrian." A picture in Mondrian's house by Cartier-Bresson who was a friend.

Geometric shapes… Superb image.

A little bit of industrial design goes a long way for me.

For me, the one above the flag: the column, which would also have enjoyed the 6x6 treatment and a slip to the right.

I really must get into the "critique" business: it's all so easy to do, this second-guessing! Do you think there's a future in it?

They are all good, but the one that grabs me most right now is the yellow pipes with the yellow barricade around them.

Rob, I enjoy my health care so I think I will stay slightly to the left, if you don't mind. But seriously, my observation with you 6x6 guys is that you tend to like what you worked with for many years. FWIW, I did a wee bit of 6x6 slides and simply adapted. Did the same with 4x5 and cell phone 2x5. Now I tend to like 4x6 having worked with it for so many years, though I agree with many that 4x5 is probably the ideal format. So here is square fix for you from the industrial establishment, so to speak.

Thanks Eric. the yellow gas pipe lines are not as abstract as the other stuff I post, but I really do like it as an abstraction of part of a commercial-industrial setting.

Love the third (flag-like) one!
Thank, Salute.

That's why I love both the square and the standard 135 format of 2x3.

Both have their uses and moments; in my case, the 6x6 camera was always a tripod-mounted device except for the Rollei TLR which had no mirror bounce [being heavy(ish), and with a Synchro Compur shutter, it was very handheld-friendly].  If it did have mirror bounce, you had a serious problem with your viewfinder!

Maybe Keith is right, these are times. A little spoof on industrial image making, inspired by Eric, who sometimes posts creative images.

Excellent, John!

It reminds me (slightly) of a snap I took of the trash dumpster in the parking lot of the synagogue across the street form us.
Right next to the dumpster was a sign "Reserved for Rabbi."

Experimenting and having some fun with my industrial images from the last few days.
Here are two which could easily go into the abstract section. These can and have been
cropped six ways to Sunday, depending on what I want to emphasize.

Hey, thanks Armand and Eric. My walks, in addition to expanding my photography, have the added benefit of giving me some much needed exercise.

Hi John, The last one is excellent. We know what those things are, but the juxtaposition is an abstraction of a sort. I'm with you on the exercise. Without the camera to entice me out I'd probably be in a wheel chair from lack of exercise.

Thanks Russ. But if I can't call them abstracts what can I call them? It's really two exercises in one: don't forget visual composing! And while you are contemplating that, its back to exercising for me. Wait...where's my grocery list...
