    That's a great one, Merg...great texture and composition. Very reminiscent of Devil's Racetrack, but with added texture and shades that draw you in.

    David, thank you. I have recently been going through some forgotten early work from the 50's. At the time, this one was a puzzle to many viewers. What is it? Is it an aerial photo? No, it's a tar pool. One of my favorite quotes from Wynn Bullock: "Mysteries lie all around us, even in the most familiar things, waiting only to be perceived."

    Excellent! A reward for the images you missed at the park.

    That's exactly what makes it great for me Merg! The Wynn Bullock quote is one that expresses this perfectly.
