Motivation is a photography blog that discusses the creative aspects of photography. The posts will include thoughts about images and their interpretation, photographers and their work, technique, workflow, my ongoing projects, and perhaps even the occasional off topic rant.


I have always enjoyed making photos of murals that I run across that look interesting. Often I put just a small portion of the mural into the photo, such as in this image I posted some time ago. 

I happened across this simple mural of a runner near the old Visitor Center in Ohiopyle State Park a month or two ago and was intrigued with it; particularly the contrast between the runner and the background.  There is no texture compositing in this is simply how it looked. Even now I am not sure why I like it....something about its simplicity.
