This is in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background
I thought that in i-Photo and Photostream there are hundreds of photos which bounce around in some electronic ether waiting to be noticed or deleted – there must be something that applies, even though it was quite unintentional. In about two seconds, I found two, so hope you like them. Maybe I shouldn’t beat myself up about organizing them properly after all.
The first, from Block Island in April, was meant to be a photo of a balanced rock on another rock. I like the clouds in the sky, which I was not looking at when I took it.
The second was taken in Edinburgh last winter when the photo prompt was ‘choose something from your neighbourhood, and I took a picture of the stone wall directly outside the door that I walk past every time I go in or out. Then I didn’t post it at the time. A closer look at something so much ‘just background’ the stone is utterly beautiful, marked by lichen, light and shadow.
Great topic – There are so many things in the background of our daily living.
Thanks for the reminder.
