During our spelunking journey last week with these guys, I indulged in my usual tripod-anchored, wide-angled shots of vast, colorful rooms. I have more of those to post, and unlike some of our former trips, I find them somewhat uplifting. But you often lose the interesting shots like this one. In general, this building didn't have a lot of "frozen in time" details, but there were plenty of interesting things to see if you paid attention. Of course, I wasn't really paying attention much of the time, but one of my compatriots tapped me on the shoulder and said "Hey Mike, you have got to get a shot of this..." Unlike the other shots taken this day, this was a quick one-off shot made in passing after a quick aperture adjustment. And it turned out to be one of my favorites. It often happens that way, doesn't it?

The colors and depth of field on this shot are fantastic.

What really attracts me the most is the left side of this image where the dirty window has really smoothed out the trees behind. It makes the hole into a border of two different dimensions.

Wonderful composition Mike! Seeing you guys in Archie's shot made be have happy memories of last Spring in Chicago.
