L is for Lock

Are you ready for another round of Alphabe Thursday? Let's go!

This week I'm rounding up some of the best pictures that I've taken of locks over the past year and a half. Taking pictures of such a seemingly simple subject like a lock is a great exercise in: 1) demonstrating that you can create amazing compositions with everyday objects and 2) focusing on the details of a scene. Enjoy.
