San Francisco, CA, July 2008 [Click to embiggen]
This entry continues this week's Thematic Photographic's theme, monochrome...I like simple, stark scenes because I think we remember them best. Like a good photo, life is best enjoyed when you strip all the extraneous garbage out of the scene. Doing so lets you focus only on the simple stuff, the stuff that matters most, the stuff you'll hold onto when things get rough.

As my plane approached touchdown in San Francisco, I looked out the window and saw this simple perspective. Of course, if you think about the engineering that makes this possible, and the complexities of the folks making the crossing, it isn't simple at all. But for a moment, all I saw was a straight line cutting across a vast stretch of monotonous sea. And I thought it made for a simply memorable moment. Don't you?
Your turn: Why do you like simple?
