I like this shot a lot. It fits the architectural genre of pattern, abstract, and urban landscapes. In my own shots around Chicago, I find myself focusing on the contrasts between old and new, natural and man-made, chaotic and ordered. The natural curves of the stone mountain -- like an urban desert -- contrast with the rigid lines of the shipyard structures. The raindrops add to the overall mood.
Thank you, Mallen. It's nice to see that someone else appreciates the artistic elements in this shot. It was the way the snow accentated the lines in the taconite that attracted me to this shot. I would very much have liked to shoot it from a frontal perspective where all the wishbone like lines were in full view. However I would have had to taken it from a freeway bridge. I might have taken the chance of getting chewed out by a state patrol if the roads had not been so icy. I found a road going in, but had to stand on a metal post to shoot above the fence that surrounded this area. This perspective was my only choice .. forgot my little step ladder at home. :-(
