Firehouse Rafters

 Mount Albert firehouse rebuild

Some of you may remember that in February 2014 the Mount Albert Firehouse burned down. It's in the process of being rebuilt. This photo was taken last fall.

I am intrigued by the angles and shapes the boards make as they cross each other. And I also like the shadows.

 Black and white version

 Another version (sorry, I cannot remember what I did)


A closeup, very closeup

Fire at the firehouse? Ironic. That wood would go up fast.

All those angles are great.

Oh Boy, these are stunning. I love what you did with this and it doesn't at all surprise me that you would see art in rafters ... Very creative.

I really like the different versions of the rafters that you've shared with us. Very well done.

I like the way you have played with the shot. I like the B & W image and the next one.

CJ said...

What a great image for creating an abstract. The straight lines and geometric shapes hold the design together and the overlapping created more interesting shapes. I like them all, but I'n partial to the B&W this time, even though I usually go for color.

Whatever you did with it, it's beautiful!

P is for pretty stuff. I need to find huge pinecones like that one. I might fail though. Everything is smaller in Europe!

NatureFootstep said...

that´s very nice steps along the way to macro. Today My favourite is the third one. I like the soft colors and the lines in it.

These would be perfect for framing and putting up on a wall!

Knipsa Passtscho said...

I would have taken a picture from that building also :)
I prefer the black & white version, there my eyes can follow the lines better without looking at the beautiful colour of the fresh wood :))
Have a beautiful day

Nice black and white photo!

Bethany Carson said...

Love how you can turn such a simple, commonplace thing into a work of art with photography and photo editing.

Jack said...

These rafters gave you loads of material, EG.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

It is all very interesting. And I love that you can't remember what you did. I can never remember everything I did because I end up trying a bunch of different things and sometimes combining them.

Super way to process a simple structure♪

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Your B&W is especially cool.
