Paying attention

Why would I choose this photograph as my first posting for this blog?
I could have just as well had a sunset as my first entry, but then I thought it way too obvious!
As I walked up to the restaurant to meet some friends for dinner, I saw this scene. The lighting was wonderful and sort of subtle. The girl at the table lent a human presence to it that would have otherwise made it seem like a magazine ad. And I loved the repetitive rectangles throughout.
I bought a purse-sized camera last year and I am never without it. I find a huge array of possibilities in my world. Some I just admire.
Some are inspiration for my painting.
See what you can see in your every day world!
