nothing and everything

Tomorrow's my last Writing and Photography class, and I'll be talking about my favorite topic - well, maybe - photos of nothing, and the ordinary, and the everyday.  So, on this dully lit last morning of April, this sight was wonderfully apposite, as I went to make my very last load to the recycling facility in Glendale.  Time for Georg Simmel!  "... even the lowest, intrinsically ugly phenomenon can be dissolved into contexts of color and form, feeling and experience which provide it with significance," so that we may come to involve ourselves "deeply and lovingly with the even most common product."
