A corner of the cube

A corner of the cube

This piece by Tony Rosenthal called The Cube “Endeavor” is on the campus of the University of Michigan.  The light rain all morning kept the Cube shiny with rain drops, some of its corners taking an orangy-red patina, the reflection on the top facet bluish gray and the downward sides fading as they worked their way closer to the ground.   See more at U of M’s site for its public art.

Barn still life (3)

Barn still life (3)

As I approached side of the barn I noticed this little moth and how it’s color blended nicely with the patina of the old wheel and barn implements, its delicate life so opposite to that of the aged iron.  More contrasts are shown with the arcs and points, lines and angles, soft light and tone and shadows.
