You Just Never Know

Morning flowers.

One Sunday morning. After the second line. Walking back to my car.

You just never know what you are going to find along the way. In this neighborhood, many of the houses have been repaired. But, just. They are functional houses that were brought back after the storm. Some are still boarded up. Waiting for their occupants to return.

And, then.

There’s this house. What can I say? It’s bright. Colorful. It might me smile. I made a few pictures. I promised myself that I would return to explore a little more.


You know what?

I’ll never make this picture again. Can you see why? If truth be told, I didn’t see it when I took the picture. But, I have a little defense. I was working from the LCD. With the bright sunlight I really couldn’t see much detail.

Just look at those windows. Those reflected clouds complete the picture. They make it different from anything I could produce later. Who knows? Probably I could make a better picture. Maybe not. But, it won’t be this one. And, these days that’s a rare thing.

    • Thank you, John. I don’t know if it’s one of my best. 🙂 I’d like to think my pictures of people are better. But, I’m often wrong. 🙂


      • Okay, maybe I’m a little over the top. At first I thought it flat out was a photograph of a painting, then a mural, had to look closely at this one. You have a painterly quality to your work that I like.
