Line of Fortune

Copyright Jeff Ball 2010

Today we took a long walk with the dog in River Front Park. I knew that I was looking for imagery for today’s blog but I wasn’t sure what I was looking for. I shot photos of broken glass, a lone brave kid standing in the cherry creek and details of a public art piece shining in the bright sun.

After our walk, we went to Spicy Basil for lunch, one of my favorite Denver restaurants. My fortune read, “We all live under the same sky, but we don’t see the same light.” As a photographer this really spoke to me. After all photography is the study of light.

As I was going through photos from today, I thought this shot really showed how different we all can really see things. When looking at this large steel structure filled with great lines and form, I saw one line and a lot of beautiful texture and color. I saw how the light relfected of these two different planes and how they were divided by a thin line of bright white light.
