Interesting study of gas meters. I'm curious how you determined the settings you used for capture, especially the high speed/high ISO combination. Are you using high shutter speed to avoid camera shake? If so, why are you not using a tripod for static photos like this?

How about "The Gasman's Apprentice"?

I like the compo, but perhaps a bit more snap in the background and foreground?

For your consideration:

Doug,
No tripod with me. Wandering the grounds of the Baker's Chocolate Factory in Dorchester, MA, near where I work one day a week. Converted into condos and apts since the chocolate factory closed years ago.
I took a look at the EXIF after posting and thought I could have shot it at 800, no problem. But I wasnt looking, had shot indoors, and didnt care if there was some grain for images taken here. And yes, camera shake factor too. And I just had coffee to warm up!

Karen,
I like the name.
Re-work is better.
I kept feeling the tops of the pipes were too hot, but with highlight recovery or exposure adjustment there really was nothing near a white point. And I like the darker walls.
Thanks.
Scott

Tripods are a PITA to schlep around, but I bite the bullet if doing this kind of photography. It probably comes from using a 4x5 to do urban landscapes.

Also, it's not like I've never forgotten to check ISO when going from inside to outside! Luckily, my years shooting film usually warns me something isn't righ when I get back funky shutter speed/aperture settings in my viewfinder.

Actually, in the shadows of the building complex. 25F, 20 mph gusts, deep blue sky.

Kent, Bob (and others):
Keep playing. I'm liking what I am seeing.
And I am glad I am not the only one that thinks the subject matter is oddly engaging and photogenic

(more than my friend's eye, for sure)

Best of both worlds!!
I'm sending this to my photographer friend, Gary Goldsmith (g2photo.com) who was shooting with me and shared his good eye!

Funny, fun, nice job Bob!!
thanks.

Taking it another direction to get separation between the meters and the background...

It so reminds me of those animated clay cartoons! I expect them to start moving off their bases.
