I’m here several times a week. Neighborhood c-store. One night, the perfect photo op presented itself. Love it when that happens. Leading lines, lighting, lack of interference, and a moment to realize. Art is everywhere; we just have to notice it.
What do you think? Ever noticed beauty in ordinary surroundings? Do you see the world differently because of studying photos or another type of experience? Let us hear from you in the comments.
One good thing about rainy afternoons is how the ordinary can take on more beauty. Here’s a snapshot of a tree I noticed in the post-rain haze of my neighborhood. It takes on new depth thanks to the Dynamic Light app’s “solarize” function and some finishing touches with the TtV Photo Studio app.
