New York, New York

This was at a construction site on a Friday afternoon a couple weeks ago. It's the entry for equipment and material into the ground floor of a building being renovated. The lock and chain provide a bit of bas-relief from the flat plane of the plywood doors. The paint has an uncanny illusion of three dimensionality, totally unintentional of course, but I thought the illusion of depth on the flat plywood beat out the real depth of the steel chain. When I go out looking for stuff that might make a picture, what I hope to find is a visual arrangement, an arrangement I'd never in a million years dream up.
