I pass these stacks of concrete slabs on the highway every time I drive home. There is a lot of construction work being done in the area, and I was struck by how uniform and neatly stacked these were, alternating direction each row like a massive Jenga tower.
It was a scorching hot Texas summer day when I took this photo, but I elected for a long exposure anyway, sensor heat be damned. I wanted to smooth out the sparse clouds, to create a nice contact between the buttery smoothness of the sky and gritty detail of the slabs. I love compositions like this, almost like trying to create a Rothko painting with photography.
