Dusted, yellow branches search for the sun.

They habitually await the introduction of spring.

Outside, winter’s frost has fought it’s last battle.

Inside, the pampered natives play rustic peasantry.

What does this object remind you of?

Millions of stars stand on each others heads. Prickly fingers dare to grasp the pulsing light of the midday sun.  Their constant companionship wins friends, loves the first breath of spring and keeps close the color of life ensured.

What does this object remind you of?

A large, sun-shaped disk gladly takes the center of the composition. It beams mightily against the quiet, violet backdrop. Small condensation droplets form around the mouth of the rusted door. The day begins with a sudden pulse of energy. Steam rises when the engine is set. The result is a mixture of courage and initiative.

This is another version of a picture I took of a common object many of us use on a daily basis. I decided to shoot the object from several different angles. This frontal view helps you to appreciate the symmetry of the design that the object possess. Line, shape, form and color come into play. This picture reminds me of the balance and teamwork that is so much a part of running a business or organization. The organizations main goal is represented by the bright orange and red disc shape in the center of the picture. Its violet and blue backdrop symbolize the people within the organization that quietly, but gracefully work to ensure its success.  What does this remind you of?

ORDINARY OBJECTS THAT LOOK LIKE SUN AND SEA

Gentle waves ripple across the surface.  A sudden burst of sun yellow radiates a familiar visual heat then gradually succumbs to a deep sea cobalt blue. The scene is hot and cold, fire and ice, heaven and earth.

When I first noticed this peculiar item at a home enhancement store, I was immediately drawn to its unusual surface.  Though the initial piece was subtle in color, it had a unique sculptural quality. It’s general pattern reminded me of heat waves, sun rays and moving water. Later, I found that a certain amount of color enhancement was necessary to illustrate the combining of these two natural elements, fire and water.

Shards of light dance excitedly on a fractured surface. The golden geometric mountain heaves and twists with each labored breath. Bits of bright poppy red and fushia explode like spring flowers as they bravely invade each shard of this well worn, knotty landscape. 

When I first noticed this object, I liked the way the light reflected off of its surface.  It seemed to gladly inherit the colors around it so that each shot had it’s own unique personality. Finally, I settled on this particular picture because I liked the warm color combination.  I felt the bright cheery color was as much a celebration of spring as it was an extraordinary exploration into something we are all familiar with, yet take for granted.
