Phone Photos

When I first got a cell phone with a camera on it I could not stop taking pictures of the landscape around me, whether it be shadows on the concrete or an odd corner of my apartment. I was enamored with how a limited frame can make any old thing into an amazing and beautiful composition. My phone quickly filled up and I had a small urge to post them all on-line as an art project. Two things held me back. One, I don't feel like having the visual detail of my life on the net. Two, there are an overwhelming number of photographic images out there. While there are plenty of skilled photographers making amazing art worth looking at I am not one of them. As an experiment I decided to paint one of my photos. Can you even tell what it is? If not: I am looking down over my knee at the sidewalk.
