Lovely Rita

The subjects of my photography are subjects of convenience. I take my camera with me when I go somewhere, I take pictures of the things I see when I get there. As such, this is just a parking meter. But to me, its just a little bit more than that. I take photographs to learn - About light, about shapes, about focus, about composition... And with each photograph, I am a nickel or two richer in knowledge... At some point, I will be somewhere where the subject of convenience is not a parking meter - Rather, it will be something more intrinsically interesting or beautiful, more "worthy" of a photograph... And at that point, I will spend some of those nickels earned photographing parking meters and such, and the photograph I take will then be that much richer itself. That's how I see it...

 

And yet for now, I say this quite a lovely parking meter on quite a lovely day with quite a lovely sunset in its sights... I'm quite fond of the photograph I've taken of simple Lovely Rita :)
