Rural landscapes: baskets and bricks
SHADOWS ON THE BRICKS, BUTCHART GARDENS, BRITISH COLUMBIA
Scenes like this are definitely NOT why hundreds of thousands of people visit these amazing gardens on Vancouver Island. They come for the stunning flowers and artfully arranged gardens (which you can see here: http://wp.me/p2ccTX-wX).
But as my wife and I did the tourist thing, I was struck by the diagonal shadow lines, the shadows from hanging baskets, and the patterns of brick. The combination was compelling enough for me to stop and make a photo.
This may not be calendar-friendly pretty picture, but I hope it shows that after more than 35 years of photography, I’ve developed enough of a creative eye to see interesting photos beyond the obvious. 🙂
