I was a little worried about today’s assignment, “Architecture.” I knew that most of my day would be running around with my husband to various home improvement stores (don’t be jealous) and the chance of capturing a compelling image at a Lowes or Home Depot was pretty slim.
Then, at the end of the day, I spied this high-voltage transmission tower and thought it could work. The assignment suggested looking at our image in both color and B/W. The color version was just OK, but when I changed the image to B/W, I think it became much more interesting.
The patterns and shadows created by the tree roots and canopy contrasts with the bright sunlight in the distance. Often a sense of mystery is created by looking from light to darkness. In this image the mystery lies beyond the shadows.
Yesterday, we left the warm Hawaiian sun and began our journey back home. Despite the 15 degree difference in temperature, there is nothing quite like the warmth experienced when we are back in our familiar surroundings.
The setting sun lit up the sky and welcomed us home.
I’ve reached back into my archives for today’s theme word. These photos, of San Diego’s new main library, were taken earlier this year. The unique architecture of the building encourages exploration and provides lovely vistas of the city and the bay.
I was intrigued by the architect’s inspired use of a wide variety of materials in this landmark structure.
I came upon this arrangement in the sand on a lonely, out-of-the-way beach in southern Hawaii. It made me wonder who it was intended for and whether they were present to receive its beautifully simple message.
