The other morning I drove a couple miles north up Highway 91 to Smithfield, Utah to return some library books. The sun was already very bright and harsh even though it was only mid morning. After dropping off our books I noticed the large corrugated building just north of the library parking lot. The harsh light was highlighting the building's metal textures. The light was also making the the building's door and windows stand out as bold geometric shapes. Taking a few pictures of what I was seeing, I felt that converting one of them to black and white would best capture the beauty of the textures and shapes that had caught my eye.

A few blocks west of downtown Smithfield there is an old seemingly unused warehouse of some sort. In the morning the west side of the building is in shade and I love the way the light makes the texture of the bricks seem so soft. Growing wild beside the building are tall weeds and grasses. The slight movement of the plants in the morning breeze added to the sense of softness and contrasted with the sharp shapes of the rectangular bricks and doorway.
