Refreshing Play

I’ve been in a photography slump recently. Mostly I’ve just been unable to shoot much, but when I have been out and about I’ve not been really seeing and so have wandered around without a camera some of the time.Sometimes a bit of a break is good.

But sometimes I have to force myself to pull that camera out!

Dan said he gave me permission to make bad photos yesterday, when we were on a little trip. (No, not because he has to give me permission to do things, I promise!) Funny, but I recently read an article by Charlotte Gibb that said much the same thing! “I hereby grant you permission to make terrible photographs.” … thanks, Charlotte! Thanks Dan!

So I just finished a bit of play. I decided to just SHOOT, whatever it was I saw in front of me at first. That was, I fear, a bit of a terrible photograph! But it is what it is …

But it was a start.

Then I pulled some objects from another room. And I shot. And shot. And I just might like some of what I got.

But that isn’t truly the point of this post and my recommendation. The point is  that I would encourage others to play around. Experiment. Goof off a bit with light and random objects. Who knows what you might come up with!

Here are some of of today’s results:
