At the Capistrano SurfSide Inn
in California, I saw this light fixture in the hallway on our floor. Getting up close I found I could isolate a number of different patterns within the whole making for some intriguing and beautiful images.
I thoroughly enjoyed taking images of the hotel lamp but had little hope that "Steams of Color
" would be well received when I later entered it, and three others, in an online ‘Abstract Photography’ photo challenge. With voting by amateur and professional photographers, I didn’t expect much, but then it started getting lots of votes and I eventually finished 9th out of 1670 photographers. Not only did that validate my ‘talent’ but it also awakened me to an area of photographic art that I now look for in many everyday things.
