Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

It was my good fortune to pass through Adin, California, on a crisp, bright morning, the first of my recent trip to the Southwest. I’d barely rounded the curve on Highway 299 leading into town when I spotted this gentleman working with a window upstairs in a deliciously green building. His red shirt clinched it, and I pulled into a graveled area next door.

While I shot a few frames he told me about the structure’s history—built in the late 1800s, it’s served as a store, a meat locker, and for storage, among other forgotten purposes—and he’s unsure exactly what he and his brother will do with it when it’s restored, hopefully in two years.

The colors attracted me initially, along with the variety of lines, and although I wasn’t consciously thinking Geometry when I took it it’s my entry for the week’s photo challenge.

  1. I agree, the green color is delicious and the bit of red with the frame of the window in the man’s hands makes an interesting focal point. And for this challenge, geometry in motion – nice!

  2. Thanks for your kind comments. This type of scene is one I normally avoid (I’m not a people photographer) but on that morning it was just right. I was a bit disappointed the fellow didn’t say “C’mon on up,” but was well satisfied with the ground view. If you pass through Adin you can’t miss this building.
