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.

Complex is over thinking something... Simple is taking whatever it is as it is...
What will be will be...
