Green Pee

Green Pee
Full credit goes to Gord for inspiring this photo.

For whatever reason he’s fascinated with telephone poles and equipment.

We’re so intent on scouring the ground and what’s in front of us that we often forget to look up. This happens a lot in big cities – places like New York where the buildings have such history and character; millions of people scurry around just trying to dodge traffic, but rarely paying attention to the detail and craftsmanship above their heads.

Sometimes these things are a little less dramatic, but no less important. I’m not saying this is a good photo, what I’m saying is that the act of LOOKING is good. Take a moment and look somewhere you didn’t before, maybe put your camera there.

And yes, you certainly CAN take that out of context, be my guest!

  1. Thanks JVL. In my opinion there are three main reasons this photo is a success. The sign in bottom camera left, the sky/clouds being perfectly wispy, and the contrail coming in from camera right. I love it.
