Behind the Dentist’s office where I parked my car, I saw this simple space, with the pole set against the rolling landscape, glowing in late, low light, and it made me once again look at where I was. This is Tuscany! This is where a Dentist’s office is! Deep, rural country and a state of the art office. How do the two go together?
It reminds me that carrying the camera always pays off even if it is as simple as a pole in the sky.
Simple things; like going to the market, or laundromat, or the dentist, can surprise any of us. That tooth chair for little kids next to the sage green, jeaned bottom of a client, (standing cross-legged in a diamond shape on the floor) seen up against that rosy-lavender wall, underneath and related to that acid green wall behind the desk attendant, not to mention the gold plate. All of it came together in a quick gasp of the recognition that once again, life offers up unimaginable combinations, and all we have to do is be there.
