POTD: Cement Mixer

Cement Mixer
Bozeman, Montana
2020

It’s probably been 20 years or more since I last used this cement mixer, or even moved it at all. Over the years of rusting, the water draining down the back of it has for whatever reason created specific paths to the base of each gear cog on the outer rim of the vessel. Strange. With the bright colors (somewhat enhanced on the computer) it has the look of lightning strikes.

  1. I see the lightning strike similarity. I’m also drawn to the complementary colors of orange/yellow and blue. And there’s a strong sense of texture as well as pattern. Nice abstract image, Larry!

    1. Thanks Kathy. I guess another way to look at the photo is to imagine the gear cogs to be high-voltage electrodes sending bolts of electricity up into the air (for some devious purpose I’m sure). 🙂
