Over a period of weeks, Moore photographed the concrete forest of pylons and T-beams that were to support the Western Distributor roadway at Darling Harbour. He always shot when the sky was clear to avoid any romantic element. In my view, the strength of the forms, their relationship and the precise concrete finish is more aesthetically exciting than much museum or gallery sculpture.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
