Low light, dark circles

I have a strong tendency toward outdoor themes when taking pics. I go to great lengths to exclude signs of people (telephone poles, power lines, cars, humans etc.). But, I made a decision to try and incorporate more urban images this new year. I am feeling my way with this. It doesn’t yet resonate with me, but I am trying capture moments and later decide the why’s of taking of the image. Seems silly to most, but a sunset, mountain stream, a flower begs a shot. A dark lit bar or graffiti’d wall perhaps, but why? It is an experiment for me. We’ll see how long I continue to explore the urban enviro.

    exploring the urb-scape is probably as satisfying and interesting as “natural” photography.

    “street photography” has never had any genuine appeal to me but it’s becoming more difficult to find virgin aspects for my cameras.

    I think that’s why so many photographers do closeup work… you eliminate all the intruding detritus of “civilization”.

    anyway…there are several sites that target street work. go to enough of them and you’ll find some whose philosophy and technique appeals to you. the next thing you know your canon will be in the closet and you’ll be shooting the world with a leica or more affordably a Fuji x-series.

    there is also the forbidden world of urban exploring ala “access all areas”.

    danger and adventure await you.
