I have a busy day ahead of me, or at least I want to. So I am doing today’s quota photo now, to get it out of the way.
And of all my recent photos I find that the one I want to put here is this:
What I think I enjoy there is the contrast between the smallness and shallowness of the puddle and the extremity of the visual effects it is creating. One silly little bit of water, surrounded only by grubby road and pavement detail, creates all that light and depth, to say nothing of the Photoshop effect it does on the building, turning a mere photo into an impressionist painting.
It helps that the building tells me that I am very near to my home, about twenty seconds from my front door. Nearly there. That always lightens the mood.
If you are not impressed …? As I have definitely said before, the good thing about quota photos you don’t care for is that they waste very little of your time.
