I have a friend who's an artist and had an exhibit of his paintings downtown last year. He introduced me to this concept of finding the beautiful in otherwise mundane things... telephone lines, street lights, highway signs, a construction crane, etc. I love that idea of redefining beauty... looking at things with fresh eyes.

I never particularly thought of the parking lot outside The Dormouse's preschool as a great place to photograph before, but almost every one of the pictures I've posted in the last week has come from there.

Here is the parking lot at sunrise.
