Three Idle Spaces


Yesterday’s photo was pure warehouse splendor. This here today is a slice of life on the other side of the oak door (but not through the glass ceiling). Staying late yesterday finishing up some stuff made me the last person at the office so I took a break at one point to wander the pathways carved in carpet and fabric cube walls. A world away from the warehouse.

What I see here is further proof that there is beauty to be found in everything. Even in the bare cubicles once occupied during the flush economic times of yore. I thought about turning these into anonymous art galleries of sorts, hanging a print or two in each, but realized the perpetrator would soon be discovered. I think I’ll probably print this and hang it in one of them.

What really makes this whole photo stand out though is the top light that cuts across the frame. It is a giant bold underline that streaks overhead not unlike a thick airplane contrail. Everything else in the frame helps build it up, but that topside diagonal raises the bar.

More to come I’m sure.
