Photographer Greg Turner really captures the funky, unpredictable, eclectic spirit of Gainesville, home of the University of Florida, where every other person who waits on you at restaurants is a Ph.D. candidate. This piece of pure art really grabbed me. It's something to do with the exciting orange-yellow wall next to the silvery cool pewter tones of the door and walk---and with the Rorschach-like blot of cobalt-blue paint on the walk, providing a third and subtle contrast to the violent excitement of the wall color.
And that shadow, of course. The photographer says that this is part of his "Chairs in the Wild" series. What a great concept. You know I love this. It's like sunshine pouring onto the bleakest place you can imagine and totally transforming it.
