Finding something new to photograph

After the revelations of the other day, it may not come as any surprise that I am a bit bored with what I have been taking photos of. I really need to start finding something new to photograph.

It is something that I have thought about for some time. Though the feelings I talked about in my last post should be an indication of why some of that might be happening.

I suspect that part of it is also because of the weather. Summer is horrible for taking photos. The harsh light drives me crazy. I know I have talked about this before.

I am also bored with the city I think. Or perhaps the city along the river. I always seem to be taking photos of the same things in the same places.

I need to start finding some new subjects. I am not sure where yet, but it is something I need to think about. I want to challenge myself more.

This is a photo of the Seafarers Bridge, and not a new subject. I have no idea how many times I have taken photos of it. Way too many to count.

One thing I have been doing is playing around with my processing and seeing what else I can do and learn.

The last few months I’ve had a small number of members in my Fine Art Way group and it has been so rewarding. Not just for me, but for them as well. I love sharing the knowledge I have. I am going to be opening it up again for new members shortly, but I wanted to share with you some of the experiences that a few have had.

Here is another post about what I’m planning on doing, but this time I do think it is time that I started working in a different way. I have been realising quite a few things recently, and I have come to the realisation that I am being taken advantage of.

It is that time of the week again for Floral Friday and this week I thought I might show some bunches of tulips that I photographed at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show. Since last week I showed one, I thought it might be nice to see some that were growing there. Almost makes me want to plant tulips in my garden this year.  However, first, a little bit of business.

Here we are, ready for Floral Friday, and it is also Good Friday. We don’t really celebrate Easter in our house, beyond it being a great excuse for lots of chocolate Easter eggs. I also love hot cross buns. Today I also want to talk to you about a new membership site I have started, The Fine Art Way. Something I’m excited about and I hope that some of you will join me.
