Photography: Profound or What?

-Ansel Adams Quotes White Brick Wall SB-

What is the quality that creates a creative reputation for a photographer? I ask this, not because I want a reputation. But, rather out of curiosity, some of those that do seem to put little effort into the subject matter. I actually, as a joke, took a photo of the white brick wall in its simplest form expecting to post it and see what resulted.

I see such images…plain this and that, which generate great ‘appreciation’ or obligation? I don’t really know. I know what I like seeing from others. But, for me, what to create is fairly random and often dynamic, unplanned. I suppose I plan to some degree by traveling to those areas that may afford me a worthy visual that moves, motivates, inspires, intrigues me.

The other day I was perusing a renovation/hardware/vintage/junk store for a project. In a small section of the place was this odd array of shapes, angles, lighting, textures…not sure what exactly. I used my cell phone to quickly walk up to each small vignette and quickly snap away. Not sure why beyond an experiment and the end result provides what? My inquisitive mind, wakeful eye? A building block perhaps in seeing more. Hmm?

    I am often intrigued by your pictures, many times I take pictures maybe others will appreciate, but for me they reflect a time, a place, and a vision that I saw and can reflect back on, keep the pictures coming, I look forward to see what is next.
