cat scratching filter

I see visual interest in objects that I observe in my home. I look for common everyday functional objects and present the visual interest that I see in this object, like this round cat scratching circle. I placed the scratching circle in a home window and took a photograph. I think that the window screen showing through the holes in the scratching circle is visually interesting. John Foster Dyess

This is my photograph of “Cloud Gate”.
Cloud Gate is a public sculpture by Indian-born British artist Sir Anish Kapoor, that is the centerpiece of AT&T Plaza at Millennium Park in the Loop community area of Chicago, Illinois. The sculpture and AT&T Plaza are located on top of Park Grill, between the Chase Promenade and McCormick Tribune Plaza & Ice Rink. Wikipedia

rebirth

“Rebirth” a photograph by John Foster Dyess

I enjoy taking photographs of every day common things ,found in my home,  and by the way light is reflected and refracted on the object makes the object visually interesting.
