Pocket Aesthetics

When your pocket photo looks better than some corporate artwork.

I saw the flash go off in the dark, but I was already trying, one handed, to load the back of a pickup truck and didn’t have time or hands to stop and look at what photos my camera was capturing on the not-so-sly. When I looked at the results later, I found this little gem, which somehow looks like it ought to be rendered in oils on a ten foot canvas and hung on the marble walls of a corporate lobby in downtown Chicago. Not that I’ve ever seen such a lobby or such artwork on display before. Ever. Anywhere. 

I wish I could actually take credit for it. The best I can do is take credit for admiring it, but I guess art is in the eye of the beholder, so I’m the one responsible for calling it art, even if I wasn’t the one creating it with any kind of intention.
