A Photo That Stops My Eye
This is a simple photo, but when I go through my photos looking for ones to post, my eye always stops and stays a while on this image. It’s like my mind sighs and takes a mental deep breath.
It’s just a window of an adobe house down the street. I love the warmth of the stucco walls, and the two different colors. Something about the straight lines give the photo such structure, but then the unkempt plants and cracks in the wall just say “Santa Fe” and soften things. And all that open space above the window and the bright sunlight. The bowl on the window sill (why?) catches my eye also. Then there’s the classic blue trim on the window, which legend has it will ward off evil. You see windows and doors that color all over Santa Fe.
All these things and my eye just wants to stay and visit a while.
This was taken with my 105mm lens at f/4.5 about a week ago when I was out and about.
