And so it went down, with a groan, and the flames from the
wounded side flickering out.

And soon no one remembered the good times hope once had.

^ What he said. I've been looking at it since you posted it, and can't for the life of me figure out what it is. I keep wanting to turn my head when looking at it though.

Well, my best advice is: give up with asking "what is it". Better train your mind to come up with its own interpretation. It is so much more enjoyable. :)

Seriously, abstractions are invitations to engage your creativity, rather than falling back into a documentary "what is it" mode.

See the movie clip, which inspired me to read the scene as a downfall...:

(PS: if you absolutely need to know what "it is"... then turn it 90°CW and think "stone pillar and cast concrete. I don't exactly know why the concrete shows this kind of irregularities. Seen in a busy street of Bern, Switzerland)

I thought that was concrete. Thanks for the response. And again, great work! Not just on this photo but the other abstract and other photos you've posted recently too.
