Just a dual lamp post on campus, an eye-catcher when thinking about tonight's class on image editing and using images in learning. Of course, I subsequently went to the classroom and set up the lesson and promptly forgot to use this one, but it does represent a nice start to March.

Emphasis on simplicity is often neglected, but these basic lines and shapes seem to provide a deceptive element of depth...despite the rust and dust. The placement is off-balance, allowing for a decent amount of 'white' space to add text if using for a presentation slide and to pull one back to the focal point. There was a fair amount of student discussion about simplicity and 'busy-ness' - let's hope that shows in their own slide presentations after Spring Break! :) Edison State College campus, Naples, FL
