Recently, I took a long walk around my neighborhood and down to the beach. I love where I live right now because of the proximity to the water. Often times after a hard week, a long stroll by the water is just what the doctor ordered to soothe your aching body and mind. While crossing the drawbridge back to my loft, I caught a flash of a texture I couldn’t resist, and snapped this, since I always keep a camera in my purse:

When I looked at the shot afterward, the palette I’d captured struck me– it wasn’t obvious when taking the picture, but I liked the simple, primary colors.

Later, while reflecting in my studio, I thought of a visual parallel to the above shot. No wonder I liked the composition of the texture, it reminded me of this:
