“And all at once, summer collapsed into fall . . .” ~Oscar Wilde
On a recent walk with my camera, the sky was overcast, so I knew I wouldn’t get any dramatic light and shadow photos. I decided to concentrate on shooting unusual angles of the tombstones and plot borders in a cemetery that I walked through.
Usually, I use beautiful objects as inspiration for my designs. But sometimes, I like to stretch myself and use mundane objects.
On a recent city walk, I gave myself the assignment to take photos of circles. Below are two of my favorite photos, sidewalk plumbing covers, and a car tire.
Using these photos as inspiration, I created the following circle drawings. Someday these circles may appear in one of my pattern designs.
I love finding beauty in the things we leave behind.
Does taking a walk in the rain make me dedicated or crazy? Either way, I got some great shots of raindrops on leaves.
