About this photo: We're winding down Thematic's doubles week. Feel free to share your own photo here. I'll post the new one Friday morning (a little slow this week. Life's just busy.)The typical car is an incredibly sophisticated combination of parts, engineered to levels of refinement that earlier generations of drivers couldn't have even begun to imagine. Despite it all, the car has become an appliance, a beast of burden we barely pay attention to unless we're paying for it - or fixing it. Day-to-day, we get in, we drive, we get out. Does anyone ever take the time to appreciate the little details?
On this cold, wet day a year ago, I lingered in the driveway for a bit. Like so many photos-of-the-everyday that I choose to shoot, this one isn't going to change the world. It isn't an iconic Eiffel Tower or a pivotal picture of an important person. But I'm thinking that not every picture needs to be iconic or pivotal. Sometimes it's just enough to record the things that make our everyday, ordinary lives a little less everyday and ordinary.
Your turn: Look around. What do you see?
