Sea Crates in the Auckland Harbor

This view just struck me when I saw it as a great study in geometrics.  The square sea crates all stacked and arranged in so many directions and heights.  Then there are all the colors and logos.  It’s certainly not a perfect pattern like the Golden Spiral and is very industrial.  Still, I found it interesting.  There is still a lot to look at despite all being of basically the same building block.  Can you imagine what all is in those crates?????

I think the containers on the left look almost like a Rubick's cube. It's a lovely picture! It would be interesting to track the life of such a container, all the places it has been to and what it contained.

That would be very hard to draw - so much perspective!! (OK, everything is hard for me to draw!!)

Good picture!

Another intriguing possiblity for tapestry design! Great exercise in slits (and what to do with them)... also angles are wonderful here... how smooth and/or how steppy will they be.

Tommye - when I took the picture I was hoping tapestry design - even if it was just to influence the setup of geometric patterns rather than a realistic portrayal. Thanks for the confirmation! Jennifer

You've got several tapestry designs contained in this one, I think. The stacks at the right with their slightly out of sync tops and bottoms, for instance... as well as the curious thin white lines that are vertical in some and horizontal in others.
Great challenge!
