When I’ve taken classes from the wonderful Sam Abell, he always speaks of the use of internal framing to make photographs more layered and more interesting. Although he was really encouraging more subtle uses of internal framing, sometimes there is a flagrant example. Like right here.
(Maybe all photographers are like this – the scene as they saw and photographed it seems like it’ll be there forever, unchanged, as though the photograph became the scene. I am that way, so when I passed through this town a week after I made this photo, I was very disappointed that the machinery had vanished.)
