Ideas and Imagery #87

I really enjoy abstract subjects that are interesting extractions from my daily encounters.  Interesting colors, shapes and lines are all around us, some more discernible than others.

This is a shot of a wheat field in spring out in Eastern Oregon.  The regularity of furrows in a field can be hypnotizing.  This pattern of straight lines moving up hill crossed with diagonal lines caught my attention on my last trip East even though I have passed this scene hundreds of times before.

Maybe it was the shadows, or the shape of the hill that made it stand out, or maybe I am more inclined to see things that interest me now that I am more actively looking.  Maybe its a combination of those factors, but I am getting results I like.

This shot is likely to be a part of one of my next projects after I finish posting about my weekly assignments project here on the blog.
