combing the streets for details

I spent the day today riding around collecting textures from the city, the fine details that are often overlooked. Focusing on industrial structures in attempt to capture some of the intentional details that are products of a design process as well as some of the details that come as a second layer. By "second layer" I am talking about the touch up's, paint jobs, scratches, dents and any other unique qualities these structures have taken on over time. I will be pulling from these images and ideas for production of trims in the new cycling apparel I am currently working on.

Some of the specimens:

the crosswalk

water drain

lamp post base

rail tie number tag

traffic signal box

manhole cover
