Just noticing

As you will no doubt have spotted, things catching my eye are a regular feature of these posts.  For me, a key part of photography is “just noticing” what is around you.  That’s not to say it’s artless, as there’s then the process of trying to craft something interesting from the material you have spotted…but the noticing is the start of the creative process.

What you spot does not always have to be earth-shattering or momentous, though.  Sometimes the simplest things can be the most intriguing.  In today’s image, the complex of patterns formed by the criss-crossing lines of the various objects intrigued me, along with the contrast of textures between wood and metal.
