Blue Walls & Gray Skies

This is the first in a series of images I took at Citrus College near my home. It’s my first serious attempt at shooting architecture.

I see this blue-windowed building every time I drive by the school and have wanted to shoot it. The day was overcast and created the juxtaposing colors in this image.

It’s almost cliche to associate blue skies with nature and lifeless gray with humanity’s encroachment upon nature. But here you have the opposite — vibrant blue architecture under gray skies.

Life can be this way. One can live with a value system or perspective only to discover after decades of assumption that it’s completely distorted. And it’s usually a crisis that initiates a painful reappraisal of one’s core beliefs. Deconstruction. Reconstruction. The circle of life for the maturing soul.
