    Obviously if you are retired or don't work, take a photo of whatever you see the next time you go out. Just one photo.

    When you've done that post it here. Maybe say a few words about it and why you chose it as a subject?
    I forgot to post this.

    ^^^^ looks like no on else wants to play along. Ah well, thanks for taking part.

    Perhaps I'll suggest another subject. Anyone brave/narcissistic enough for self-portraits?

    due to the fact that I forgot to take a photograph today,
    I post 2 pictures I have taken the past year on my way to work,
    in 2 different countries

    why I chose them huh?


    work 1.jpg


    in the first one, it was early in the morning, cold and I was sleepy

    I was in the car looking indifferently the scenery

    when I saw the tree and behind it the impressive building,
    it looked like the stage of an open theatre where the play would start soon
    And I thought I should photograph it
    And I did it



    work 2.jpg


    this is again a photograph on my way to work

    scary scene like a novel of Daphne du Maurier

    but at the same time so attractive was the sea

    ps by the way in this case, I was listening Mahler's lied von der erde

    ^^^^ good. And nice explanations about what you saw.
    The second shot makes me wish for a wooden shack on the beach, where upon awakening in the morning instead of drawing back curtains I pull the natural covering of branches to the side, revealing the view and the day.

    Well, I've no plans to make the move to live in such a location, but I've learned that in life it's wise to 'never say never'.

    Anyway, thanks for sharing your photos. If the weather is fine tomorrow I'll walk to the studio and perhaps on the way I'll see something to shoot and then post here.

    On my way to work...
    This was bravely growing out of the top of a wall beside a very busy road.
    At the time I didn't notice how badly out of focus it was, but the lens was wide open and it was windy and the traffic was rushing by and and and...I missed the focus. Simple as that.

    Photography is so easy now with digital.

    I think back to the days when amateur photography was more involved. One was careful about the pictures one took, because developing costs were usually a consideration.

    I miss the old Look, Life, and National Geographic magazines. They were the standard bearers for professional photography.

    Just sayin'.

    I used to love those glossy, developed photos. Something pleasurable missing with digital.
    More photos, yes. More pleasure, not so sure.

    Bit of yes and no here. I like a good analogue picture. But what I'm finding is that with digital I'm shooting a lot more. In the old days, you would try really hard to get a shot and then grumble when it wasn't quite right when it came back from the developers. Now you can take a shot and see how it looks instantly. If you don't like it you try again and again and again oh and just one more for luck. Then when you get home, you can see how they look and then gently retouch until it comes out just right.

    That's not to say that you don't worry about composition and exposure and framing and "telling a story" but it just gives you more freedom. On our last break, I took way over 150 shots where previously I would have taken maybe 20 or 24 - a basic roll of film. Out of those I got about 60 or so "good" shots. That's the fun of digital.

    ^^^^ yes, the flexibility and freedom that comes from working in the digital domain.
    Years ago with exposure you would bracket the shot, but even then could be left with a lot of work. Nowadays a quick look at the histogram or simply the screen will help you out on the spot.
    However I prefer film. I couldn't stand up and successfully debate the corner of film in a debate. But I still prefer it.
