Verticals

I recently posted a color version of this photograph. In this monochrome one I invite you to look not so much at the figure but at the many many vertical lines in the composition. They’re like a marching army coming in from the left side.

Sunday Starbucks Stoop Sitter

Today, getting the paper, I came across this man sitting in the sun and savoring his early morning coffee. There’s a nice division here. On the left side of the pillar is the often constricted nature of our local neighborhood and on the right is a contented gent gazing peacefully out at the passers by.

When I first made this photograph, I was so fixated on the lovely blossoms I didn’t even see the Japanese Beetle munching on one of the petals. Now that the bug’s presence is very obvious, I find I don’t mind it at all.
