Why do commonplace things sometimes catch our eye?
For me, in a world in which it seems every headline ends in an exclamation point whether it needs it or not and much of what passes for news is click bait, the mundane is refreshing and sobering.
I look at this array and wonder what they're for. But I also wonder about the people who designed them, manufactured them, planned their use, loaded them, unloaded them, and installed them. Each one quietly and without fanfare doing an honest day's work.
No exclamation points. No hyperbole. No click bait. Just humanity in the simplicity of black and white.
