Insulation accidentally sprayed between exhaust vents on the back of a restaurant.

Basis Shot:

I frequently walk past a local Sushi restaurant that is near my home. On the back of the building, there was a ventilation duct that had a very small piece of insulation protruding from it, and it got caught in the crossfire of the back wall being spray painted. I found that with the proper exposure it had a strong graphic form. I have found that many people have a very strong, emotional reaction to this image. This photo has been featured in a juried art show. (In basis shots, I have an over exposed version of the image which looks like what most people would see if they walked by). I went back months later to take another photo and the second version came out even better. Several months after that, it was a useless mess!
