You with other artist here at BP have this fascinating ability to see things as a whole, then you take them apart to find the parts that are so interesting and make for beautiful art work. Love the colors, that rust adds to it and the textures, all against a blue sky. Gorgeous look and find Patrick. #1638089

Paddy, as Frank says, you sure do have an eye for this type of thing, something I take for granted every day, and seem to miss. It makes your photography unique, inspires me to look closer at what is around me, and look at it in another light. Well done on this beauty! #11377104
