Take time and find interesting subjects in ‘ordinary’ places.
|I enjoy traveling and seeing new places! Combine that with a trip and my camera and it is pure joy!Â However, there are usually beautiful places to photograph near your home that we too often overlook because they seem normal or ordinary. This is why I resonate with this quote:
“Photography is an art of observation . . . it is about finding something interesting in ‘ordinary’ places.
Seeing and photographing iconic places in the world is an adventure many photographers dream about. However, due to many reasons, we don’t have the opportunity to travel to New York City, Glacier National Park, Blackwater Wildlife Refuge, etc – But each of us has the opportunity to photograph where we live.
I live in Beaver County, PA and I make it a gameÂ looking for different places to photograph near where I live.Â Often I have a camera with me and will stop when I see something new and ‘interesting’!
