August 16th, 2011 – Bring the Hammer Down

Today’s image is from my archives, one that I hadn’t intended to post because I wasn’t quite satisfied with the composition. There was a construction fence that limited the view I was able to shoot from. I had originally cropped out the concrete plinth the machine was resting on, which in seeing it now would have been a mistake  as it is an important part of the context. Sometimes it seems best to let some images sit a while before processing them.
