    This rusting corrugated metal roof reminded me of the words of the song. The colours, pattern and textures appealed. I don't know what the white stuff is - it looks like a chemical efflorescence, but I don't think it can be.

    Love it. Great colours and patterns. You've really got an eye for interesting abstract shots.

    Thanks for the comments Antarctican and Hamburger. Hamburger, there's a chance that your students - like the young visitor who saw it on my computer screen -might think it's tiger skin!

    Regards, Tony

    "Tiger skin" is one cool thought, I must say!!
    I like the idea.

    And - as always, but do I still have to say so? - I like your photo. Great eye for textures, patterns, lines, repetition ... you are the King of Composition for me, no matter if you go wideangle or close-up ... it is always so brilliantly composed. And exposed. Of course!

    Thanks Corinna. I'm glad you like the composition - I thought long and hard about it. I seem to look for composition before any other of the qualities that make a photograph. I think the fine art (painting) training in my earlier life pushes me that way. However, it means I ignore whole genres of photography - you rarely see people or animals as the subject of my shots - and that's something I keep meaning to remedy. One day :wink:.

    Regards, Tony

    Nice abstract texture, my guess is fading white paint.

    Very tiger-y indeed. Really nice.
