Art in Unexpected Places

I’ve recently had the opportunity to do photos at a construction site. I was there taking photos for an installation. While there, I took some more artistic photos. I have always been fascinated with the idea of unexpected art. I look for patterns and unusual shadows.

I spotted this shadow late in the day. The triangle created by the building’s shadow perfectly frames the person shadow.

This scaffolding with the paint buckets caught my attention immediately. With all the diamonds and rectangles, interrupted only by the paint buckets feels almost intentionally visual.

This angle of the scaffold drew me in with the perspective pulling the eye all the way through and the wood slats breaking all those little horizontal rectangles.

Inside, all the framing bars were just an endless pattern of light and shadow.

This simple yellow cord hanging from the top of the building is my current favorite. The yellow against the gray and the shadows really help it stand out.
