I was wondering what that is. Regardless of its usefulness, this is a beautiful capture. Crisp colorful and very creative.

I have no idea but think that Bobby is probably right. What ever it might be, the one thing we do know is that it is a unique and beautifully done EOD. I love the white shapes around what could be stairs, a vent with the slats at a angle, or the bottom of a tennis shoe for grip. Lets ones imagination have a guess. Beautifully done. I think you enjoy seeing us try to guess what it it. Fum for all of us my friend.

-THIS- is the honeycomb staircase leading to Willy Wonka's basement level. There is a restaurant there. Those are eating tables made of Black Licorice.

What do I win??? (This would be nice).

I thought after Bobby said what it was everyone would know. I should have stated that in the beginning!
Laura, you win one of those , also! You have to come to NL to pick it up though!
Amanda, you can tell us! We have all been wrong before.

I stared at this for a long time in the thumbnail, then I opened it and stared some more. Then I read Bobby's comment and knew he was right! Marvelous capture of another mundane object, Paddy, and of course, beautifully and artistically presented with gorgeous light and great detail and clarity! Wonderful work!

Hi,Patrick..As always this is a very creative image and one that made me think a lot..I thought of some mechanical part,a very small piece to be attached to something..Oh,well,next time..
Excellent details and colors and once again very well seen and captured.

You're amazing...Just totally amazing. I know your unique and creative photographer's eye is obviously a big necessity in your life but sure wish, by some magic, we could swap for an hour or so...I just KNOW I'd be seeing the world from a wonderful, marvelous and very different perspective! Another "wonder", creatively presented and executed perfectly...OK, I'll take 15 minutes instead!! :)

I positively love this, Patrick! Great light, lines, tones and sense of drama thanks to the shape of those dynamic curved lines. Good luck this time around! I too hope and expect to see it again!
