Spikes!

Most of my pictures are an attempt to capture something I see the way I see it.  The flip side of that is the way the camera lets you capture something removed from the scene itself.  Behold, spikes!

This is the kind of scene that I really wish I’d have brought the macro lens out for, but you shoot with what you’ve got.  Usually shooting mid-day doesn’t work that well as there are no shadows with the sun overhead.  Shooting a vertical surface like this turns the regular rules around as you get the best shadows with vertical light.
