The curved lines and spherical top of a street lamp stand in stark contrast to the fluffy clouds of the afternoon sky. Its purpose lies in wait while the sun's light dominate, but it plays a major role for almost half of the day when the skies darken and the only other illumination shines from the moon and provides the guiding light.

When I think about how much I take for granted in my daily life, i.e., those 'street lamps', I realize the number of undervalued structures, events, people and concepts that truly make the world 'tick'. Attention is often misplaced - much like the 'squeaky wheel'. Instead, the focal point needs to be identified and recognized for its worth...even if that goes against the flow. 7th Ave N & US 41 E, Naples, FL

  1. Photography makes us see more. Even when we focus on when thing, when we look at the photograph later we see more.
