Open and shut case
Hold on to this
Quebec City, QC, July 2011
It was a beautiful night. We were walking through the middle of Canada's most historic city with our good friends, drinking in the atmosphere of this remarkable place.
We happened across a display of Ford vehicles. Our eldest son gravitated toward the Mustang and was soon recording it from every angle with his BlackBerry. Since I have kids, mountain bikes and groceries to shlep, I meandered over to the Focus. You already know I have a thing for red hatchbacks, and they had parked and lit it in such a way that I couldn't avoid a walkaround.
This is my favorite shot of the bunch. Partly because it speaks to the kind of simplicity that brings comfort. And partly because the longer you look at the complex-shaded, compound surface, the more you realize it isn't really as simple as it first seems.
Subtle. Yet not. And all because I was out for a walk with some of my favorite folks. Cool how life works, eh?
Your turn: Things that are complex and simple, all at the same time. Please discuss.
