Road ditch photoshoot

My favorite quote is one from Roald Dahls’ The Minpins.

Above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.

The location I used for this light and posing study was an unsightly ditch on the side of a moderately busy road. I’d driven past it many times on my way home from work without giving it more than a second thought.

I was recently feeling the creative itch. It had been awhile since I’d used my camera, so I challenged myself to pick an ‘ugly’ location and see what I could do with it. This was the location and these were the results. I’ll have to find something ‘uglier’ next time!
