I bring a camera along with me on my “commute.” I use quotes because I walk to work and, while I try to vary things up a bit, I pretty much walk across one major street, then among residential streets the rest of the way. So I try hard looking for interesting lighting, lines, shadows, patterns, and textures. I find myself aiming my lens at the ground a lot, to be honest (not that I don’t get some photos from that).

I apparently am enthralled by crosswalks, as I have an inordinate number of photos of the three that I run into during my walk. This particular image is actually on color slide film, scanned, then converted to black and white. I think that helps bring out the lines even more in the images. Who knows…
