A group from my church traveled to a camp in Westcliffe Colorado last weekend to help clean up after a wind storm. The storm was actually over a year ago, the damage was extensive with winds well over 100 miles-per-hour.
Back in the city winter doesn’t want to go away, we are still waiting for summer.
It has been a very busy few weeks for me, not leaving a lot of time for photography, or at least not as much as I would like. This week in particular I have felt like I am in a creative vacuum. This is my eighth week on the “lines” theme, and I am starting to feel it. Of course that was the whole point, to shoot something so much that I am forced to see it in a different way.
So it comes down to making time. It isn’t anything new or earth shattering, and I have written about it here several times already, but it is a lesson I keep learning time and again. Make time, even if it is only for a few photos. Make time to look at what is around you, and you see differently.
What is your intention when you take a photo?
What idea are you trying to convey, and how do you translate your thoughts into an image?
How do you take what you see with your eyes and make your camera see the same thing?
