This photo was taken over 5 years ago in March 2005. In the workflow of Mr. Larry Patrick, this one would have been long gone. As I recall, I was in Galveston on the UTMB campus on a Saturday with time to kill and a camera in my hands. There are these elevated pipes behind the hospital that carry utilities all over campus -- one of those things you see all the time but never have a camera around. This time I did. They were gleaming stainless steel, so I did some texturing and toning to get what you see here. Nikon D100, 50mm; f/9.5, 1/160 sec; +0.5 EV; spot metering (and I never spot meter). EXIF doesn't lie. I have no idea why I was spot metering.
