study of some trulli* in both pattern and texture











* trulli = plural for 'trullo', a traditional italian dry stone hut with a conical roof. Their style of construction is specific to the Italian region of Puglia. Trulli were generally constructed as temporary field shelters and storehouses or as permanent dwellings by small proprietors or agricultural labourers. Their golden age was the 19th century (according to wikipedia).

What is that last scene Noel? It looks like a hillside composed of Lego blocks!

My apologies for this late reply, Joe. Those are concrete bricks, used in low cost housing, and here used to buttress a mine dump dam. The sand from these mine dumps are very loose, almost powdery, and easily blown by wind. It is close to a major arterial road hence the need to buttress that dam. Unfortunately, they will not hold out for long, as water is already seeping through these, and I got my shoes pretty muddy to these shots. But there is a business that recycles these mine dump sands, to extract the fine gold dust, so probably these dumps will not be around for too long, but what they will be replaced with is another matter. Probably trees (hip hip hoorray) and loose gravel.

Some more texture/pattern shots.
