There are times when I’m out wandering, looking for photos to present themselves that something catches my eye but it’s hard to pinpoint what it is. This was one of those instances. I was walking some trails around St. Peter’s College and I came out into an opening and this scene caught my eye. It wasn’t exactly what I was looking for but knew there was something that visually intrigued. I thought it was the tree that caught my eye but that wasn’t it either. After a couple more tries I finally figured out that it was the haphazard tree branches against the geometric shapes of the fence, brick wall and vent that drew me in. I’m not sure if this kind of photo appeals to everyone. It is just a tree, a fence and a brick wall…but it’s the relationship between the elements that I like!
Anyway, quite often that’s the process that I go through to make an image. Sometimes it works and I come out with a photo I like, and sometimes I never do figure out what caught my eye and come away empty handed. Glad it worked out this time.
