The city of Rio Rancho is fairly new. I mean, REALLY new. It is 31 years old this year.
Needless to say, the public art program in this city just started a couple of years ago, so the public art inventory is very limited.
Thanks to the New Mexico 1% for Public Art, it allowed for a small purchase for Fire Station 6 in Rio Rancho (due to the nature of how it was funded).
So, I headed out there to photograph the public art (it was a photograph collage).
Instead of showing you the public art I went out to photograph (I'm on the city's art commission; which is why I was on that errand to begin with), I'll show you the happy surprise-which was the sun shining through the garage that housed all the trucks and equipment. The fireman that was there offered to open the door so that I could get an unobstructed shot, but I opted to stay with the patterns that the glass on the door lent.
Shadows. Patterns. Texture. What's there not to like?

Every week, a group of us from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted! You can view all of my 2011 Shadow Shot Sunday images on my Flickr account.
