Metallic Miracle

An itinerant artist left this colorful feast, unsigned, for the discerning shooter to sample. This metal door, so mundane from a distance, brought us back three times in different lighting to savor & sift as we methodically unlocked its hidden beauty.

Forensic Foraging thrives on bringing out the best in every day things. Hundreds of people walked past this door daily and saw nothing of note. The garage manager finally noticed that when the light was just right, an urban artist's palette popped out. Most of the day, in harsh direct light, this door was a grungy smudge next to the sidewalk. However, as the evening Golden Hour produced a more diffuse glow, the street painter's brilliant work sprung to life and into our viewfinders.

This photo defines the value of Forensic Foraging, releasing eye candy from nothing!
