Well used, Marrakesh, Morocco, 2006

I found this mass of painting ladders in a dark storeroom. Shooting through an open doorway, I create a symbol of value. There are many ladders here, and they have been well used. They may not be pretty to look at, but they perfectly represent the concept of utility -- the state of being useful.

Glad you find these pretty -- I saw them as well used. Beauty, Cyndy, is in the eye of the beholder. Glad it works for you as well as it worked for me. And thanks for being the first to comment on this picture which I posted over one year ago.

This is one time I disagree with you, Phil. I think they are very pretty to look at! You have transformed these tired old ladders into an abstract work of art!
