I shot this photo on Sunday while we were eating lunch at Agave Maria’s Restaurant & Cantina in Ojai, CA. My husband and I always stop at a lovely eatery when we take our weekend motorcycle rides. I have a photo of every time we have eaten at a restaurant on any of our motorcycle rides for the past two years. Even those we frequent often I find some shot or angle I haven’t used before. They are all taken with my iPhone 4 and I upload to Instagram to document the place.
Yesterday at lunch on our (fabulous) ride, I kept in the back of my mind the Monday Phoneography Challenge. There were these great umbrellas over all the tables on the patio and I simply pointed my phone up and started shooting. I love the abstracted shapes the insides of the patio umbrellas make with their spokes and bright colors. The dappled leaf shadows add an extra dimension of pattern and interest. I played with the image on Snapseed to abstract them further.
I hope your enjoyed my choice. As always I’d love to hear your comments on this post or any part of my blog. See you next week with the next challenge!!!!
