2012, Day 74 - Repose

The great thing about photography is that it has the capability, when properly executed, to convey both action and inaction.  In this case I like the stillness.  You can smell a bit of diesel mixed with tar and a hind of the river on the breeze.  During the day I expect that the crane is in motion and you can hear the gravel pouring over the edge of t he conveyor belt onto the pile like a bit of white noise while trucks and tractors rumble through the yard.  But at night it is still, the air is cool, and the only sounds come in the form of the low hum of traffic speeding across the Fremont Bridge high above.  In spite of the signs of activity that surrounds the site it is almost peaceful at night.
