I took this photo of Purple Fountain Grass against the bright blue of the hood of a parked car this afternoon. To my surprise, when I looked at the photo this evening, I discovered that there was the reflection of clouds on the hood of the car. I’ve played around with the color a little bit, both to emphasize the contrasts, and to have a little fun. But this isn’t far off from the original. The striking blue of the hood of the car was what made me think of creating an angle for the shot that would show the fountain grass against the car.
*Look closely in the bottom right hand corner and you will see the curve of the hood of the car. Look in the lower left hand corner and you will see some white in the background. That is one of the headlights.
A bumper sticker on someone’s beloved (very) old Jeep. He parks and reads every afternoon on the street corner. The owner is white haired and has probably owned the Jeep for a very long time. Wouldn’t be surprised if he maintains the Jeep himself.
