It’ll be trees and streets
Posted on 12 Dec ’12 by Earl
Most of my photographic opportunities are coming from local sources these days and I don’t foresee that changing in the immediate future, so, as fair warning it’s probably trees and streets for a while.
I guess then it falls to me to find some interest in capturing and presenting these “common things.”
Having no huge “discoveries” to photograph it’s on to creatively working for the finer points of appeal in the familiar.
Even “common subjects” can have expiration dates, giving only narrow windows of opportunity.
The other day I was taking photos “In the weeds.” Now those weeds no longer exist, mowed down (photo above,) thanks to local park maintenance which either saw a weeded nature area as a threat or busy work more valuable.
