Rebar

A few weeks ago, I posted some shots from an abandoned barn and noted that the 202 parkway was being built nearby.  I try to drive the road that passes the barn several times each week, because it's a nice lunch-time escape.  I have been keeping an eye on the construction progress because I thought it might yield some interesting photo opportunities.  Well, here's one I like.  The parkway will have a bridge over Almshouse Rd.  The footings for the bridge support have been poured and this is the rebar that forms the support for the pilar.  I intentionally waited for a cloudy, overcast day so I could get the effect I was seeking.  I was able to walk up to the construction and sit on the ground to get the angle I desired.

Beautifully captured! I love the geometric lines of this shot - and the lighting really is perfect.

I'm not sure I got all of the pillars stuff ;-) but I do like the graphic lines a lot.

Construction offers some interesting photos... and this is one of them. Cheers!

Great idea. This looks really cool and black and white was the way to go for sure.

That's really quite a sight, Wayne... Well seen. At first it almost appears to be a tall building reflecting the clouds.

Your wait was worth it. Fine photo.

Definitely worth the wait.

It looks like a giant grid - lines and squares galore. Perfect.

Nice pattern there. I agree with Marka, construction work does offer a lot of food for shot! haha
