The Harp by the Door
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
The Harp by the Door
The Harp by the Door
For more than a century, Mare Island (37 miles north of San Francisco) was a US Navy Shipyard. Its WWII workforce of 40,000 was scaled down to 5,800 in 1993, when the base was closed. Today Mare Island is an interesting area with many beautiful, yet unattended, old structures. Here, the pipe with its shadow looked to me like a harp. The music suited the atmosphere. f/3.2, 1/2500, 1/4000, 1/6400, 1/8000, ISO 200, 55 mm, May 28, 2011, 8:00 am, Mare Island, Vallejo, California.

What a great eye you have to spot a musical instrument where most of us would have glanced to see a shadow, or a pipe, but not the two combined.
Congratulations on your well earned finalist, Rony!
