Friday Illumination.

I was walking down a stairwell the other day instead of the elevator (it's good for me apparently). And I liked the industrial simplicity of the florescent lighting on the cement. I guess it doesn't get anymore minimal or stark that that, but I still thought it was cool and beautiful enough to shoot. And it makes me ask myself the question, why do certain things jazz us and not others? Who's to say something is beautiful and something else isn't? Is it personal taste, is it conditioning, is it openness of mind or does it really matter?

It definitely matters! I believe it's mostly about respect and appreciation, and taking the time to explore and enjoy. And maybe challenging our conditioning....maybe stark isn't so stark, maybe it's richer than we think.
At the very least it's always good to keep your eyes and heart open to what's around us. Enjoy your world! :)
