Excellent trio of photos, Alan. Last year, when I was shooting a utility pole near the Lake, a stranger asked me what I was photographing. I said I liked the way the light hit the pole and brought out the color and texture of the wires and transformer at the top. He shook his head and walked away, saying nothing. Needless to say, I’m proud of that photo. But yours is way better!

Thanks Ken. Based on the stranger’s reaction when telling him what you liked about the utility pole, you might as well have been speaking a foreign language.
I’m reminded of the time I asked an award-winning mathematician if he could explain to me, a lay person when it came to the holy church of numbers, what his work was about. Without missing a beat, he said no, and I was grateful for his answer. It saved a lot of wasted time and energy for both of us :)
I love how you’ve made your shadow as important a graphic element as the rest of the image. Or maybe it’s the other way around. Either way, I really like the first photo. And the second one! Yeah, well, the third one, too. Your creativity just floors me.

Thanks so much Linda. I very much appreciate your kind comment.
You’ll be happy to know I took the first two pictures after I had stopped across the street to photograph the opposite curb cut featured in https://pixetera.co/2017/09/26/tuesday-september-26-2017/. As promised, I wanted to see what the image would look like if originally shot from the 90 degree rotated view I posted. It was impossible to reproduce the same composition so I guess that says something about optics.
The full moon was taken through my window at 2:00am, an hour I am usually still up because of an addiction to checking out news stories on my computer. I can only imagine how different my life would be if you-know-who wasn’t president.
I love your comment on Ken’s blog about photographers who like painterly work and painters who like hyper-realism – made me laugh.
I’m with Linda, above. The first one works so well because of the composition, and because the shadow is darker than they often are, so it just becomes another abstract element – but you know that! ;-) And it’s fun that light & moon are twins.
Thanks Lynn. Glad you liked both words and images.
