Occasionally, I'll spot a potential photograph that I'm inclined to capture - if only for myself. While most of my daily work is assigned or geared toward the State Journal's daily editions, there are instances when I'll see something I can't pass up. This picture is like that. Our next day's local page was already filled and it's not necessarily the type of image I'd offer as a stand-alone, but I'm happy I grabbed it.
I first noticed the juxtaposition of the converging cables of a construction crane with the painted lines of a roadway in my vehicle's side-view mirror while stopped at a traffic signal on my way to an assignment. But by the time I parked and re-visted the scene, the crane had moved and the picture was gone. A little patience, though, and the coincidence reappeared - just the way I initially saw it. Sadly, I couldn't do anything about the distracting utility pole just above the horizon, but I kind of like it anyways.
