My mom used to say to "Never leave home without a dollar in your pocket. You never know when you might need it." Such plain advice prevalent in our culture when I was growing up. The most mundane things show up years later to have real value. Now, I try not to ever leave home without my iphone.
While getting a new windshield install in my car, I went for a short walk and found these marvelous textures on metal carts at a powder coating company. They seemed to mean nothing to the workers using them. I was so glad to have had my phone just then to capture these images of pure color and texture. It would be difficult to make such beauty on purpose.
