After I took this picture, I stepped inside the shop and asked permission to take some shots of the fruit on display. I think you’re better safe than sorry when it comes to asking for permission in situations like this. Rather than have the owner walk outside not knowing who I am while I was taking pictures of their fruit, stepping inside allowed me to introduce myself. Doing so was both polite and respectful of the owner plus it put me more at ease while I was taking the pictures.
Whenever I can’t decide which orientation I prefer, I’ll compose the subject in both (or all as the case may be) directions and decide later!
I’ve walked this street what feels like a thousand times already but I took this photo last week. Keep your eyes open, even in places you frequent often.
The town where I live is covered in lights this week for a festival providing me lots of great photo ops around almost every corner!
What are you eating? It might just be a great subject for a mini photo shoot! In this case, there is a story behind these… check out the story here on my website called, “Ripe Pomegranates” to read more!
I may have mentioned this before but I love taking photos of texture. There are a number of things here in this photo. The smooth silverware, shiny cellophane, the burlap table runner and shredded twine are a few. Can you spot any others?
This is a simple example of a “leading line” but it is also evidence of a hard morning’s work! A friend and I participated a few weeks ago in a park clean-up day. We spent the whole morning raking and bagging the leaves that covered this walkway. If only I had a “before” picture to show you how much we accomplished!
I hope you had a wonderful semester and wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
Your friend and fellow photographer,
