Gradient

Gradient

This photograph was taken a year ago at a local park. Some of the benches around the water fountains are situated in semi-enclosed wood structures. Looking up from the benches, this is what the "roof" of the enclosure looks like. I was drawn by the lines, shadows and contrasting colors. To me it looked like a couple of different line gradients suspended in the air.

Looking at the picture now, I can see some lens distortion that I didn't notice before. It goes to show how much our perceptions get refined when we continue to practice something.

This is just a quick note mentioning that SpartanburgSpark.com is asking local bloggers about how and why they got started posting their thoughts online. The post is here: http://www.spartanburgspark.com/2009/01/local-bloggers-why-did-you-start-blogging/
