This is the first real day of my 365 photo challenge. Today I must find something interesting to photograph. But what? I'm not a photographer, nor am I entirely certain how one finds interesting things to photograph. Yet somehow as I began to look around I discovered plenty of choices. It seems that if you set out looking for something to photograph you end up finding things to photograph. Isn't that a revelation!
Okay, so revelation is a bit strong. Okay, more than a bit strong. But not only did I find a neat spot today, I found some things I would love to photograph another day. I also discovered that this whole idea could spawn a crime spree. Yesterday I stole an idea. Today I contemplated how best to trespass onto someone's property to aquire access to my photo subjects. What's next? Perhaps a foray into jaywalking?
Here is my challenge to you today - Look around you, look in your office, out your window, in your kitchen. I guarantee your eye will find something worth taking a second look at. Instead of charging through your Tuesday take a moment or two to really notice something regular or everyday. I discovered that even those pesky Canadian Geese provide a bit of beauty on a frozen January day. If you can find your image within the limits of the legal system, more power to you. You've clearly got a leg up on me.
