Simply Seen

A Light and its Curvature

A Light and Curvature

I’ve been told I take photographs of odd things. That’s true. While I was enthusiastically photographing this light, quite thrilled with the two color tones of wall behind it, the graceful curve of the wrought iron, the textures – metal, fluted glass, adobe, wood – I had three different people approach with cameras in their hands. They stopped, peered at what I was photographing, probably asked themselves “What IS she photographing?” and then walked on. They just didn’t get it.

But I got it. The picture I imagined in my head was captured with one of my photographs. How sweet that is!

  1. LOL You see where other photographers do not. This is a wonderful capture of “simply seen” of the light contrasted by the colorful, textured walls. I really, really like this image!

  5. It’s a very “One man’s junk, another man’s treasure” sort of story, only switched a bit. Sometimes we take for granted simple little pleasures, like an awesome lamp for instance. Takes a good eye to noticed the little things. πŸ™‚

  9. Love this! The contrast of the colors and the curve of the light makes for a bold, geometric image. Simple but GREAT.
