Nature and human took part in both the sidewalk and the stand of Bamboo. Both settings have been designed by human hands. Both settings have been altered over time by nature.

Backgrounds should compliment and not distract the viewer from the main subject. When they are out of focus they add an element of dimension to the image. These two images of Ibis, at Flaminco Gardens in their Rookery area, cleary demonstrate impressionistic, out-of-focus backgrounds. Not sure if they’re too distracting; but for me they add an element of design not usually found in images of birds. Enjoy or not; let me know please.

Building design is the art of an architect. Observing building details, both inside and outside is a pastime of students, historians, engineers, and appreciative novices. The compressed population of buildings in downtown Chicago yields unplanned design elements. Quality of these inadvertent designs are left to the observer, professional and amateur.
