Photo Inspiration: Up, Up, and Around

Another chance to showcase a lovely photograph, and perhaps inspire you into a new story, a new scene, a new scenario for your fictional worlds.

Today’s selection is a photo from Shane Blake, who also contributed the wonderful Waffle House photo from last month.

I selected this photo for today’s Unblocker, for several reasons. First, I love the color and the subtle gradations between the pinks and purples, the yellow lights along the wheel’s struts. Second, I love the geometric angles and curves in contrast to the cloudy softness of the background. And then, there’s the head, the single visible passenger. He (she?) surely has a story to tell.

Thanks, again, to Shane. You can see more of his photography examples at his website.
