Like Saturn's rings...


Abstract light
London, ON, February 2010

This is another one of those abstract-in-the-everyday moments that literally appeared to me when I looked up. I was at an indoor playground, of all places, watching the kids frolic with their friends, so it wasn't exactly a prime photographic environment. If we're being brutally honest, it was hellish, with hastily painted surfaces assaulting my eyes, screaming children assaulting my ears and a growing migraine working its way through my brain stem.

But even the most barren deserts have their charms, and such was the case on this day. For a brief moment, I found solace in a neat example of optics in a place where no one else seemed to care.

Your turn: What's the most desert-like place where you've taken compelling photos? Can you share one?

One more thing: Possible song reference in the title. Guesses?

God made Saturn.
And he liked it.
So he put a ring on it.

What a fantastic photo shot Carmi...I think it's even moving....can you see it turning? I'll check my photos and see what I can find....from the desert...
and that song do you mean this?

Okay Carmi, I accepted your challenge and brought forth compelling desert view yet lacking luster in color to me. Next trip there new camera (as this was a throw away)...can't wait....!

It's not very hard to find deserts in Utah, so Max and I have TONS of desert photos. However, since it was 11 F. today, I chose this lovely reminder of summer days past in a desert:

a reference to
"It's Beginning to Get to Me" by Snow Patrol?

An icy loop around me
Too hard to hold"
