Strolling ever so gingerly

I went out today to do some shooting whilst on a break from some work I was doing and I couldn't get one decent shot. I walked up and down the high street and nothing inspiring caught my eye. At least if I were missing moments I'd understand, I was getting rusty but this time nothing came out at all.

Sigh! So you're gonna have to enjoy a shot from a wedding as I have nothing interesting worth posting at the moment. This is really giving me a lot of concern because back in 2006 I would get out there and get at least 4 keepers. Today I don't have as much time as I did then to go out let alone get the images I am drawn to these days.

Speaking of images of today, I don't know if you're like me but it's becoming very difficult to get really good images. I don't know if that's because I have become extra hard on myself of whether I have just been conditioned to photograph certain types of moments. For one everytime I'm out all I want to do is photograph people. The affinity toward inanimate objects has kinda left me. I think that's going to be my next challenge, capturing the inamimate.

Sorry guys, I have no interesting story to post today. I actually had something worth talking about but I've forgotten it. I think that's another way of saying my day was very dry...

Okay Yinks....you have nothing to hound me on today (not like you did anything harmful yesterday anyway). Why don't you all tell me something interesting about your days huh?

Love the composition on this one. You are beginning to make me process in black and white more often than I ever thought I would be doing. But I'm actually loving it. It's kinda hard for me also to shoot something I feel is very inspiring nowadays too. I'm in the process of relocating so I hope my new city will have interesting things and people to shoot. By the way...My day has been boring as hell. Video games have been keeping me quite sane thoughsmile
Loving this shot, notice the girls gaze, awesome and intense, makes the pic a lot cooler
well spotted and framed
