Scout and friends.

I get a great deal of satisfaction from serendipitous color unions, particularly when it happens in nature. The best color theorists and artists can bring color together beautifully, but nature does it best. My dog was innocently sniffing through some brush along the side of the road and came up with a muzzle of green, it made me laugh and I took this photograph. What I did not plan was the combination of this green leash associating itself with the burs that stuck to his face. The brown of his fur, the contrasting brightness of the green and the framing of the green ivy along the upper right corner of the photo. These design principles avail themselves everywhere, in planned ways and naturally.
