Not so ordinary anymore!?
I guess you could call this photo out of my comfort zone. Why? Because, when I look at sidewalk, I am not inspired to take a photo of it. To me, there are certain objects/subjects/things that require more creativity on the part of the photographer than others to photograph.
My camera is becoming attached to me, I am trying to take it everywhere- even on my bike rides, I have a basket on my bike just for it! Anyway, I have found that just because I want to take photos doesn’t mean there is always something that I see to photograph. I am trying to stretch myself into seeing more. I have to admit this sidewalk photo was pretty ordinary in color, but after playing with it in black and white it seems to have a bit of character, not so ordinary anymore. Well, that’s what I’d like to believe anyway! :)
