I went for a run tonight along the Mississippi River and saw dozens of photo opportunities. Of course, I can’t run with my fancy camera, and I forgot to bring my camera bag in the car. Which led me back to my apartment. Where I take photos of last resort. With the window blinds open to let in available natural light, there I was standing on my coffee table (yes, standing!) for a good 15 minutes trying to photograph the kitchen tools with which I make my daily bread. I hope my neighbors across the street were watching.
My photography friend has challenged me to 7 days worth of photos that do not include food or architectural details. It’s true…for the past couple weeks, nature and architectural details and food have become my fallback photos, and I need to mix it up. Now that daylight is longer, this should be easier. I hope. We’ll see.
