Abstract - Indian Blanket; Rust Mosaic IN8003
This entire image, apart from the frame was composited from a single frame (link below) in four different orientations. I knew when I started this series of abstracts that I wanted to do at least one rust abstract. I got lucky on my recent visit to Spicer Orchards, finding a piece of old farm equipment that had rusted in a colorful way and that had a portion which lent itself to a diagonal format.

Here's the link to the single frame, in its original orientation out of the camera ( http://smu.gs/1qQf2Hp ) . I cropped the original shot to a 2:1 aspect ratio that created two dark triangles of approximately equal size at opposite ends of one diagonal. As I say, I got lucky. When I took the shot I had no idea I'd be creating such a pattern, so I did no planning on how to orient or otherwise compose the original.
