    They're a bit boirng for me. They seem less abstract more photo of a wall in different lighting conditions.

    The third one is most interesting because of the shadow. Otherwise, I'd have to agree w/Daniel. Would an even closer shot of the fabric be better?

    Don't know... I didn't get any closer to the fabric... would have had to bring a ladder - and that in the car dealers' area of the town? Uh-oh... someone might send from the doctors that bring the shirts with the extra long sleeves...............!

    Here are some less abstract photos of the same series:

    And two photos not from the showroom but the offices in the building next to the showroom:

    In that golden light I "honoured" (without their knowledge) more car dealers' shops with photos, but those are for later - if at all. I shall see.....

    Ha! I see what you mean. I REALLY like the last one. It has an Asian feel to it.

    Thank you all :).

    The first two (the ones that seem to be a bit boring) are, in fact, crops, and I was trying to follow Joe (clarinetxxx) and Scott (spiralout) in their tracks ... somehow...

    The shining, metal wall-covering of that Ford-dealer's - which only gets this golden glow for a couple of minutes in the evening before the sun disappears behind the shopping mall opposite this building - had fascinated me from afar for many evenings in a row, and only on Tuesday did I get to be in that place in time for the photos. Therefore do take the title to this thread literally: these REALLY are only first attempts at going abstract.

    Here's what I detected on the side of the building whose front has this metal covering (only above the large showroom windows, mind!), I think this is quite abstract, so much so that I can't tell you what these holes in the wall are there for!
