Behind the Dollar General store (Marfa)
Even artists have to buy toothpaste and detergent and gum. And, when they do, I assume they head straightaway to the Dollar General store, on the east side of town.
But unless they happened to be walking around back, they missed the composition of lines from the metal building and the carts which were reflected in a puddle.

Something tells me you weren’t too keen about lying down to get the reflections up close for this shot. Not without full suit of impermeable rain gear. Thank goodness you did not need to in order to get a good shot. This is one I don’t think I would want on my wall – but only because it might tire the eyes in pretty short order.
Funny story: if you stare at the lines long enough you will see a Mondrian.
If you stare at the lines long enough you might have a stroke! I suppose it could be a stroke of genius, or an apoplectic fit.
Either one is likely. Both are possible.
