A Prior Arrangement

“Reflection is a flower of the mind, giving out wholesome fragrance; but revelry is the same flower, when rank and running to seed.”
Desiderius Erasmus

I went on a photo walk around downtown Kissimmee yesterday. This weathered and worn arrangement of nature in plastic caught my eye at the back door of a downtown business. Maybe it’s just me and my natural curiosity, but when I see things like this I want to know more: What’s the story? No matter how simple, there is always a story.

Reflecting At The Royal Eatery

I was waiting to cross the street when I turned around and noticed this gentleman sitting at a window table in a downtown Salt Lake City diner. I liked how the reflection of the tree, car, sidewalk and planter pulled him out of the confines of his diner surroundings and thrust him into the outside world. I also liked the way the metal piece on the rear of the reflected vehicle masked his identity.

I did not like that I was in a rush and had to ignore my sudden craving for a piece of pie and a cup of coffee.
