The mundane seems to explode with possibility when looked at up close. This is part of the carpets I put on my decks in the Winter to make them less slippery. From far, they are unremarkable, dull, brownish, dirty, rough, and not very appealing. On the day I took this shot, the sun was bright and changed the tone of what I saw. More than making it lighter, it seemed to bring out small hints of colour I’d never noticed before. The closer I got, the more I saw the remnants of life stuck in the inconsistent weave of the rug. Leaves, flower petals, small feathers, bug carcasses, hairs, and stray threads. It became a wonderful abstract vision of the life that walked upon it.
