Now what do we photograph?

Sometimes I look around at the late autumn/pre-winter landscape and think how boring it looks. Drab. Monochrome. Blah. Especially on a cloudy day. Ugh.

It's days like these when I take my camera outside and search to see things in a new light. Somehow, when I have my camera with me, I see things in a way I wouldn't see them otherwise. I play around with my camera more, looking for new perspective.

This...



Turns into this...



Sometimes there is humor to be found in the landscape.


Like where this snow remains: in a crack where the sun don't shine. ;)


Color presents itself, reminding me that not all is drab.



And I focus more on lines, and texture.









And, I get on, around, and in things.







Next post I'll show you where I was, what I was "in", to take these last 3 photos. But in the meantime, I welcome any guesses from you all!

Beautiful - I loved the angles you showed on the trees and their length!

Good job Heather for proving there's beauty in every season--you just have to look for it.

Shellmo - thanks for stopping by. I am quite fond of the tree photos, too.

Ruthie - you got it! I've decided that part of my mission in life is to share the beauty I find, and to encourage others to seek it for themselves, no matter where they are.
