Morning Views

Just to change things up I’ve been taking a different route to work this week.  And remembering some of my lessons learned from last week, I’ve been trying to take a few minutes every day to stop and take pictures of things that catch my eye.  This week’s #sdawpphotovoices theme is repetition…and my route this week has some quirky features that capture that theme.

Here’s a photo I took this morning of a row of palm trees planted along a road above Highway 101.  This photo is in its original state taken with my iPhone.

You can see ocean with the marine layer off in the distance and the beautiful blue of the early morning sunshine.

Below this row of palms is a pumpkin patch that I notice when I drive on the road below.  I walked down a ways to try to get close enough to capture the orange of the pumpkins.  I wanted to capture the ocean as a backdrop, but my iphone just isn’t able to capture the detail and the distance.  I did pull this photo in and cropped it a bit to emphasize the pumpkins.  I also used the souvenir filter on the app tadaa to change the effect.

In some ways this filter makes this scene look like something from the past instead of one taken today.  I love that pumpkins are growing along the side of this road in a suburban beach city…a relic of the agricultural history of the area.

I think I’ll try yet another route tomorrow…I wonder what I’ll notice!

What do you see on your way to work?  How does it change your view of the community?
