Bored in a Parking Lot

I was with a friend who wanted to run into Golf World for a few minutes. I am not a golfer so I said I would wait by the car. I pulled out my camera and looked around for something interesting…

There were some electrical towers running over the parking lot and it was an overcast sky, so I started with this…

I like the simple lines and graphic design of the image. On a side note, even though it is very monotone, it doesn’t work as well as a black and white. Some of the subtleties are lost.

Then I thought of incorporating some of the foreground trees that were just waiting to bud, creating a contrast between natural and man-made “trees”. 

I ended up with this…

I really like this image on a number of levels. And it was taken while getting bored (not) in a mall parking lot. 

My point is that you can take creative images anywhere. It is just a matter of seeing, experimenting, and being open to what is available…
