So it’s Monday and another week rolls around. I was sitting here thinking about what to write on this morning, flicking through my catalogue of images and looking for something that would inspire me. I am lucky enough to have been able to travel all over the world, to many beautiful places just to take photographs and I have many images of which I am proud. Funny then that to me my favorites are not the Northern Lights in Iceland, nor the Camargue horses but the less dramatic, quieter moments like the one above. I find it amusing also to think that despite spending all that time and money to travel far away my favorite shots were all taken near where I live or lived, some within 5 mins walk from my door and most of them were of everyday things and situations.
There as many great photographs out there right under our noses as there are photographers is what I guess I am trying to say. It’s wonderful to travel around the world to see new places, different people, new landscapes but before you do remember to open your eyes to the everyday world around you first. If you do, it will make you a better photographer.
