There are interesting things to photograph on campus. This yellow post wrapped in candy-stripe red and white ribbon captured my eye. It was in the middle of a sidewalk, I assume, to block automobile traffic.
I composed the picture so that the post is prominently in the middle. I was inspired by a recent Pat Metheny Group CD cover (The Way Up). Of interest are the contrast of background light and forefront shadows, the vertical green posts and white Sycamores, the vanishing perspective of the sidewalk.
I imagine that there are other things too, but I won't tell you so you will use your imagination to its fullest.
