I was strolling through town earlier this month (April 13) when I noticed a cute little outbuilding that I’d never noticed before. The metal roof had a very cool patina. I snapped a picture with my cell phone and moseyed on. But first I told myself, “Self, you have to remember to come back here with your real camera.”
Fast forward to this past Sunday (April 21). I did a photo stroll to capture some of the Spring blooms before they go away.
When I got to the outbuilding, it looked lovelier than ever. I didn’t notice the patina I’d remembered, but chalked it up to lighting conditions. Light does interesting stuff.
Here’s the shot I captured with my real camera.
I actually captured quite a few really good images on Sunday, which I hope to one day share with you all.
Later that evening, as I was deleting pics from my phone, I came across the cell phone capture of the same building.
That’s when the lightbulb went off.
“Huh!” I said.
“‘Huh’, what?” Shannon, who was still here, asked.
When I showed her the pic, she said, “Huh,” too.
Why? Have a look at the cell phone capture.
There WAS a cool patina on the roof. The key term here being “was.”
Amazing what a little paint can do, eh?
