I could not resist this parking lot, with that cracked up paving. I wish I had gotten an even lower angle.

There is so much going on in this picture…the door to nowhere, the dumpster at the top of the three-story staircase, the covered-over panels on the top floor (fire? murder scene? abandoned?), the broken satellite dish (and how much signal could they get here, I wonder), the beautiful brickwork, the middle window with the odd opening at an angle, all the beautiful lines. I could stare at this one for hours. This has been very inexpertly edited in GIMP. Editing black and white shots can be quite challenging, especially when there's not the widest range of tones to begin with. But I'm learning! There's a bit of blurring at the top, which reminds me of early 20th and late 19th century photography.

I have a thing about walls, apparently. I guess it's part of my thing about flat surfaces in general. At any rate, I found this wall interesting because it just went on forever without a single window—odd and rare.
I do wish that I had lined it up a little better, but as I said, I was in a hurry. Maybe it's better this way.
The focal point is in the lower right hand corner now. Like the previous image, the grassy area to the left of the road is emphasized, but this is balanced out by bringing in a lot of blue sky.
The focal point is in the upper right hand corner. Had I been standing in the exact middle of the road, this image would have resembled the previous image to a large extent. But because I was at the edge of the road, this composition emphasizes the grassy area at the edge of the road.
The focal point is in the top left corner. This composition emphasizes the road.
The focal point is in the bottom left corner of the image. This composition emphasizes both the sky and the stand of trees to the right.
Our eyes naturally go to the focal point in am image, in this case, the end of the road which is in the center of the image. There is a little visual interest because I was standing off to the side of the road, but nothing much is getting emphasized by this composition.

The best-looking Monotropa spotted that day. They are fascinating plants. You can read more about them here.

Another batch of Monotropa. Sometimes the stalks were clustered together like this, at other times, several individual stalks were located over a 1-meter radius.
