Tanks

I just love fuel tanks of any sort, especially when they are white or silver colored. They have a fabulous range of shadows, particularly if shot in the early morning light as this image was. Since these tanks are white, they are also reflecting the yellow tinge of the light that comes just after the purple of first light. Take a look at the base for these tanks... aren't the layers of paint interesting, beginning with a faded black paint, then peeling, then moss, then street art tags?

It was interesting to shoot this particular object because it was on the way to work, as a number of folks that I work with, who are accustomed to me in a specific work related context, were concerned that maybe something happened to me, such as a flat tire.
