As I was driving to pick up my daughter from school today, I felt like I had hit a bit of a photographic jackpot when I came across these wooden crates stacked up. It was almost like someone had strategically placed the red pallet in there just because it looked good being there. I love the attention the red pallet demands just by being unique. It’s something we’ve all heard before, but if we consistently find ourselves conforming to the expectations and routine of our society and peers, it’s very possible that we are hiding the very aspects of our identity that most desire to shine.
Perhaps a little more on the moody artistic side, is this shot that I made a little later in the day. I love the texture and fluidity that water lends to a photograph. In this image, I think I was most attracted to the contrast, not only of the light, but also of the lines. The reeds protruding from the water are hard lined and sharp, while the water and reflection are soft and flowing. I composed the shot to emphasize the reflection while keeping the reeds as the subject matter.
