I had this bucket of barn pole spikes in a storage building for years with the intention of photographing the random pattern that they took on by themselves. I finally decided to do it when the storage building got a bit of flooding this summer and I discovered that the plastic bucket was rotten and about to bust. The galvanizing gives the spikes a crusty look and adds to the character of the rough texture and industrial look.

The spikes create a very interesting pattern and form a nice abstract image.

These make a very nice abstract/pattern, Joe. Is this the natural color or did you convert? Interesting textures.

Hey Cindy

That is the natural color and texture of the galvanized spikes. They have a coarse texture from the zinc coating and a silvery color. It is truly a straight shot.
