I was reminded of the patterns of life today. Coincidence, better still, order out of seeming chaos.
Everything came together in unique and interesting ways. The good part was that I noticed. It’s easy to not see how everything is connected as life swiftly passes by.
In one cell phone store, there were six people that happened to all be there at the same time, each of them with a connection to at least one other of the six. I walked out of there with a profound sense of connectedness out of the chaos of life.
I also happened to be driving towards home, with my camera, which also had an ultra-wide lens attached to it, as the sun had set. A perfect setting for this image unfolded at the right time, with me in the best place to capture this image.
“Look at the light around you.” That’s a approximate quote from many photographers I follow. The most recent example was a story told by one of my favorites, Zack Arias. He answers questions on photography at zarias.tumblr.com/
I saw the fading light as twilight descended towards night, and thought it would be a great opportunity for a scene such as this. I also happen to live close to a park, that I figured would be deserted after sunset. I saw the trees, bare of leaves, and the wispy clouds moving overhead, and I was happy as could be to be right there, right then. A few shots later, and here you are. No tripod, just my wallet, my card case and my pen to elevate the camera’s lens hood above the walking path. Sweet.
