The late afternoon sun puts the vivid painted wall to fire. The clogs in the weathered wooden crate offer a festival of hues and textures. The bucket below, the long bolt holding it up through a crack in the crate and the strange arrangement of twigs on the side (still no idea what these were about, if anything?) complete the scene.
I must have taken over 10 shots, varying angles and framing, but only this one recorded in full what I saw. Diagonals, attraction points, lines leading the eye... all classic rules of composition seem to be condensed into a single example.
And the beer was tasty and refreshing as well!
