Ways of Looking at a Bollard

Well, they say photography is partly about seeing interest in mundane things. So here are five views of a simple bit of street-furniture:

  1. fisheye, defished – for an ultrawide distorted effect, the bollard in its context
  2. minimalist – all distracting elements removed for a pure study of lines
  3. abstract – reduced to a pattern of lines, curves and textures (two of these)
  4. telephoto – from afar, with moderate context

All are black and white, HDR made from 3 frames bracketed +/-1EV.
