taking simple photographs

It is hard to take simple pictures. Too often I’ve looked at the day’s harvest of images only to see tree limbs, cars, people, and who knows what else in the background. Sometimes no matter how much I try and frame a subject just right against the sky or a mass of foliage something shows up that I didn’t plan on. So I was really pleased with this image, which has only the simplest of elements and was thus the perfect vehicle for this quote from Robert Pirsig, author of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.
