Perception is one thing, and yet, our experience cannot help but color perception in some ways. Is the photo below (generously manipulated) a view of an industrial park from some high perspective? Is it an architect's model of a future business development? Is it the cover of a science fiction book? Does it remind you of something that you cannot quite put your "finger" on? Please note that while the shapes and focus have been manipulated, the colors are pretty true from the original.
Done guessing? Below is the original before and after the cropping.
It is the guts of the beast that I smashed with a heavy mallet a few days ago. It represents a few years of my life, a bit of which was saved and much which was not.
