White Hot....

Middle of July and the Midwest Summer was at it's peak...dry, crusty earth encroached where the bright green and lime of Spring once flourished.

The grit of the concrete bleached white from the unyielding heat felt like a bread stone fresh out of the oven. Everything was black with shadow or white in the unprotected glare. The pillars along the walkway cast perfect ink lines onto the sidewalk and the shaded wall. The only distinguishing features were the dim track mounted lights that were useless now but would serve their purpose in a few hours as the sun set to my back and over my right shoulder. All then would fade to a welcomed cool black...black as night.

I can see this picture hanging over a contemporary black leather couch. Very interesting shapes and shades of black.

This is a great image. The perspective and invitation for reflection are wonderful.

Great photo Dan, a very abstract composition of black shapes with the stark glare of the white, one would welcome the softness of green foliage or the cool and black of night.

I love the bread stone comparison! I have to admit, I love it when it's that hot. You'll never hear me complain about how hot it is. Cold, on the other hand...
