Small things / by Mario Mirabile

I'm taking a week off next week and heading down the west coast. I'm looking forward to beautiful light and broad vistas, but whatever the weather brings it will be good to get away for a few days. I've been very busy trying to wrap up some things at work before heading off, so I haven't been out and about much at lunchtime. Perhaps its just over-familiarity with the places I've been able to get to, but my attention has been caught mainly by small details rather than large on the few short outings I've managed.

I'm not really looking for anything in particular, and sometimes it's the strangest things that catch my eye. Mundane objects like a rusty old lock poking out from a seemingly plain background take on new dimensions as I play with angle and focus. It really doesn't take much to keep me entertained.
