365-41 My daily and some observations
I was driving past the local college when I saw these chairs on the campus. It was under 20°F, so I’m not surprised that any students were taking advantage of them. It will still be a couple of months yet before they get regular use. I used my Pentax K20D and DA55-300 lens.
As far as my 365 project is going, I am happy so far. I have really been using the project to get out and shoot as well as a way to practice and test my processing skills. I’ve learned a lot so far, both technically and artistically. I recommend anyone to try a similar project if they are interested in photography. What I don’t recommend is they do it as a chore. They feel like they must take a picture and they just snap the shutter at anything and calling it a day. I have visited a few blogs and Flickr groups to see what others are shooting for their 365’s. I am finding a lot of imaginative, creative work but even more dull, senseless, and technically awful photos. What’s the point? If you’re going to take on a project, any project, why not put your whole heart into it? I understand having off days where the creativity just isn’t working. I’ve certainly had my share of those. I would be the first one to tell you that I have a long way to go, but I’m trying every day to come up with something that somebody may be interested in looking at. Hopefully, my image will inspire them or they’ll learn something from it or, simply, just enjoy viewing it.
