I take photos of buildings, but I don’t share many of them, not many people seem to be interested in those types of photos. Originally this was going to be a photo of a building, and then the warmth of the late afternoon sun lit up the grasses in the area, and also the pontoons around the pump station, and I thought that it would make a better landscape image.
I was originally shooting in landscape (horizontal) orientation, but then I noticed the moon, and tried a portrait oriented version that I came to like.
After a slight crop, I decided that I wanted it for the Deck Project, even though I still think that there are others from this walk that I think are better. I had shot this with the Sigma Ultra-wide 10-20mm on the Canon 60D.
This is the pump station on the seawall along the Lusignan – Anandale area, I’m sure the fishermen in the area must be getting accustomed to seeing people with cameras in the area by now 🙂
This was one of the few times I approached a scene with a preconceived idea of what I wanted, and as usually happens, I usually never get what was in my mind’s eye, but keeping my mind open to the possibilities around, I came away with good images none-the-less, simply because the scene itself gave to the process.
I hope you like it.

Venturing far afield in search of opportunity there Mike. I have to say though, that is a lot of rusty metal 🙂
Rusty Gold! 🙂
Nice shot mike… I think HDR may be another great idea for this shot too…
Thanks Taneos. I like doing HDRs, but I didn’t think this scene needed it, but you never know, eh? 🙂
