I went back to have a look at these photographs taken April 29th. of this year and recalled the joy I had taking this little series. The area in which the pictures came from was no more then maybe four foot square yet what was happening there was so amazing. The light casting shadows, the colour and the metal joining together by bolts and weld all tied together more with paint made this very special.
I like the idea of looking at an image and seeing first the colour and texture, composition. Then on a second look the 'afterimage' appears, a bolt, the shadow of a handrail or weld joints. You think of history and travel, and weather conditions, how many people have grabbed onto these handrail's in what province and country.
