A couple of years ago, I took this picture of a building near my church. I loved the shot, and was very pleased with the picture. I like the colors, the lines, the shadows.
Then, after looking at it a long time, I particularly liked the blurt of white in the center of the top of the chimney. It’s so random and so out-of-place, but it just made the picture for me. It wouldn’t have been as good, if that blot hadn’t been there.
Do you see it yet? The true crown of the picture. I didn’t see it when I snapped the shot, but this is the heart of the scene.
What a happy happenstance!
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Pay very close attention to an ordinary scene.
