Art is Art – Even at the Outback

As the title implies, art is art no matter where you find it. Art is appreciated only when you invest time to notice it. Here are a few “common” bits of art that you may (or may not) have seen while dining at the Outback. It’s actually quite good. Amazing colors! Hats off to the artists!

Another Unlikely Photograph

We felt compelled to submit another image for consideration for this week’s photo challenge – Unlikely

Sometimes the most “unlikely” locations provide the best opportunities for a great photograph.

Silhouettes, shadows, and a bit of mystery.

The light was perfect for only a brief moment – the sun reflected off a car’s windshield in just the right way to illuminate the ceiling of the Outback restaurant we were dining at. I grabbed my phone and was lucky to capture this wonderful image.

Another version below but with an extreme crop and no color shift.

The original uncropped version below.

You can see why this original view inspired me to take the image in the first place. I could see the final, cropped version in my head (in monotone too).

My favorite image is the top one. I think I have the crop and tone just right. What do you think? Which is your favorite?

Thanks for stopping by!

Wonderful memories…

Carol and I in the early 1980s. Less gray but still plenty of smiles.

So happy together then and now.
