When it's a bright, sunny day, I look for shadows, and although I loved a close-in shot of this tree, I liked including the shadows in this one.
And then, walking back to the car, I photographed some doors and windows on an old warehouse that was across the street. Not content to leave well enough alone, I made this image, which is faithful to the original but totally different. The complementary blue/orangish-brown colors are appealing, as is the fact that the doors/windows are the same yet different.
A good day all 'round.
