Anchor bolt

Posted by Harry (Apex, NC, United States) on 14 February 2014 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

An exterior staircase was held up by large girders, each anchored into a concrete footing by 4 big bolts. A little the worse for rust, but still sound. I like that the shallow DoF throws both the foreground and background into blur (the back- more so than than the fore-).

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

A fine close up of this massive bolt. I like your focus and careful use of focus on the before versus the focus behind the subject. Very well done.
