    Some things are abstract yet concrete. Or is it the other way around.

      You do have that photographer’s eye Jonathan! Take the simple and common place, realize that it isn’t so common – and preserve it! If you ever visit Robert Avrech’s site, seraphicpress.com – he is a Hollywood screenwriter who, in addition to telling us stories of classic Hollywood , will stroll around his neighborhood – taking similar photographs in hi LA neighborhood.

      If for some way you could put these in a time capsule – as the 100 year old pictures of London – you will be considered an unrecognized genius in your time!

      We take for granted the beauty of those great cloverleafs and arcs supporting layers of concrete – it’s neat to see them “foregrounded” – I guess within our every day lives is a lot of strength & beauty we ignore.

      I’ve got one or two nice pictures of concrete pillars and overpasses myself – and some interesting chances to take some more, as they are just now constructing a proper interchange where a main highway to the north intersects the outside ‘ring road’. The city builders and movers of San Antonio always seemed to come to these things decades late … and the resulting redesign and construction obstructs traffic for at least half a decade. But my, isn’t it wonderful when it is done!

      Jonathan – with your love of Florida photography I’ll bet you would find his book fascinating. A Wall Street financier, A.W. Dimock, went to an “un-travelled” area of the Everglades in 1910 – had a 37 foot houseboat and darkroom – made some remarkable pictures of the Seminole – there is a book review with some of the pictures
