A Beautiful Image
Came across this image a while ago in some random context.



There are a lot of things that I really like about it. It's an industrial setting, which is a positive for me. It's also an unusual space, a place that most people don't normally see, so that's also a positive. It has a worn and weathered quality that I also appreciate.

The framing of it is reminiscent of Richard Diebenkorn (whose birthday was today, I learned earlier). It also has a flatness that makes it more graphic than representational.

Even the color of it is surprisingly nice, and I'm not first and foremost a color person, but I don't think this would work as well in black and white. Desaturated it in GIMP and it doesn't work nearly as well.
