CONCRETE CHORUS LINE

In another part of the Hundred Acre Warehouse Park:

While I was busy taking pictures of the Mayflower warehouse loading docks, I could hear something…maybe music? voices?…coming from behind the next building. Rounding the corner, I saw a large-but-tidy stockpile of concrete barriers, the kind used on the highway during construction.

That noise? Those barriers were singing my name at the top of their little concrete lungs.

I felt honor-bound to do some portrait work for them.

Is anyone else getting a Deathstar vibe from these pictures? I’m looking for rebel fighter ships to come screaming through here, guns a-blazing.

And for those who care about such things: these pictures were taken with my new ultra wide angle Sigma lens. I had the 17-85mm mounted on my old Rebel and did get some nice shots with that set-up, but the Sigma with the 7D just produces  brilliant results. As always, click on individual shots for larger view, better details.

N.B. This is Wabi Sabi Blogpost #100!

    You were hearing the pulsing of those reds and oranges, breathing life into the slabs, slight as they are, they spoke volumes to me. Nice touch.
