Shadow Light and Lines

Shadows, light & lines captures the eye from this weathered wall.

Believe it or not, this photo was made with the iPad Mini camera. Something that I always love to see is elements that create strong composition in the square format.

The morning sunlight through the trees casts a shadow onto the wall of this vintage garage in my neighborhood. The vertical lines provided by the plants create an added touch of the grid pattern needed to complete this moment in time. 

I chose black and white because not only of the drama of the light, but also to concentrate on the elements of the subject. If you add color to this image I think it would be too distracting, as I try to give my images three-second-impact when you first view them. 

I can only imagine what this wall has seen since it was first built, and, as in life, the beauty that comes with age.
