The rain had turned to mist so I ventured out. I wanted to catch the barge on the Charles with the sign saying "www.bridgeriggers.com." The notion of barges with web addresses was a strange cross of old and new. I'd brought my monopod since I needed to shoot with the 210mm lens and I knew it - I - was going to wiggle. While the rain subsided I thought I'd try to get my shot.
The barge was small and far away and I got some shots but I suspected they weren't going to work out. I was standing on the dock where I often shoot and stopped for a moment to see what else was there. This rope caught my eye. I never thought of rope as multi-colored; this one was. And it was fun to see the wet and dry areas and how they contrasted with one another.
That wasn't the only contrast I saw. As I often do, I circled this accidental assemblage. Since the rain was getting more insistent, I worked very fast and shot a few different angles of this area. Then I beat a hasty retreat.
What I ended up with are two different views of this same hunk of rope and iron base. What strikes me is that they seem so different to me, even though the objects are the same. Small changes seem to make big differences. Duh, I guess it's obvious: not happy with what you see? Move yourself slightly and it may look entirely different. And it's clear that this is a lesson that plays out in my life in many ways. Makes sense.
