For more than ten years, I’ve carried a camera with me everywhere. First it was my small pocket-sized digital camera and now it’s my phone. Everywhere you look, there are possibilities for beautiful pictures. In fact, today, my Bosom Buddy Andrea and I were poking around an old store, cluttered with LOADS of fun things, and when we left, I spotted some flowers in the parking lot. The scent of the honeysuckle drew us in,
and then we spotted the brilliant purple sweet-pea.
Over the long weekend, I had the chance to go out to the country garden, and as the sun was sinking into the western sky, I took this shot.
As I headed up to New York last week, the soft morning light blurred the lines between the river and the sky.
Carrying a camera/phone with you and using it will help hone your eye. You will constantly be observing, looking for interesting details, checking the skies,lining up angles and sight lines, seeing how colours interact with each other, finding patterns and repetitions.
I try and make a point of taking at least one picture every day, and most days, I take many more than one. Tell me about your picture-taking practices and habits.
