Ah, those reflections look wonderful. smile
Dave Carrington: Hi, Larry. The reflections are from a brownish & stagnant redundant industrial canal: the obvious presence of water is better imagined rather than seen!
Excellent reflections and colours Dave.
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Bernie! smile
Great natural colours Dave, if brick is naturalwink
Dave Carrington: If you live 'In T'North' it's entirely natural! smile
some fine light and textures here Dave, no british standards here thensmile
Dave Carrington: Hi, Tim. Well, this one was taken in darkest Manchester: it took a lot of work to warm it up! smile
I've just been transferring some films from video tape onto
DVD's. This image reminds me of the film 'Les amants du pont-neuf' that I partially watched today as I re-recorded it. This image is prettier though.

Great hues ... it's almost alive.
Dave Carrington: Hi, Richard. I have seen the film: a trifle pretentious, non? Unlike my shot, oui? smile

loving it... study in textures, tones and light...
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Sam. You can't fail with old brickwork & sandstone. The shallow, northern sunshine picks it out ever so well, don't you think? smile
The bricks alone would have been worth the shot, but the reflections off the water are a terrific bonus.
Dave Carrington: Agreed, Ian. The water was actually pretty grimy: it's a canal! Surprising what a little light can transcend, eh? smile

Brilliantly observed Dave
Dave Carrington: Glad you like it, Chris. I really must stop lurking about under bridges! smile
Hinted water... What a subtle concept for a bridge. Very sensitive of you.

Picking up on Richard's mention of 'Les amants du Pont-Neuf,' it certainly has that kind of... rotten, ill--and at the same time pure--feel to it.
Dave Carrington: Thank you, Guillermina. This bridge doesn't have the same romantic allusion as le pont-neuf: it spans an old industrial canal in Manchester! smile
