Today’s Photo: Master Lock
I found this master lock hanging on the side of an old building several years ago. Unfortunately for the family, I have this habit of slamming on the breaks and stopping to take photos whenever we are driving some where. Scheduling time to go take photos never works, so I think I will just go back to improvising. Maybe it just has something to do with the creative side of my brain. The creative side of my brain really kicked in on this photo; the colors and contrast for this image are fascinating to me. I don’t think I could have had Sherwin Williams match the paint to the blue of the master lock if I had planned it.
There is something special about the old buildings that I run into in this area. The combination of the weathered paint, wood, and rusted metal makes for some interesting combinations. It is too bad a lot of these buildings are being removed to make way for future development. I am not one to stand in the way of progress, but it sure does decrease the ability to find interesting old building to shoot. I guess I’ll just have to find some other fun stuff for photos. Maybe something some modern architecture? Like Midtown in Atlanta or maybe a trip back to Chattanooga.
