Walking the walk with the Fuji

I’ve gone out the last few days with my camera and besides some interesting looks from other people out walking, cycling, running; its been good. I had hoped for some basic inspiration and creativity from the over 1.5 hours sometimes of walking. I zone out and listen to Google Play Music on my Galaxy S8+ so don’t hear the smatterings of discussion and I also exit the scene stage left since I am also a walker. The city and rural streets are a gold mine of things to find. Small sites to apply to the camera and then harvest from the walks.

Here’s some proofs of the scenes.

I think people want to find the next great thing to take with them. Some larger than life frame that lights up the people as well as the room. The truth is that the big scenes are made up of many smaller ones that I think we find our ways through with no real notice. There is a geometry and a beauty and science to even the regular when I am out moving during a walk.

There’s no explaining it but its there. A small thing that looms up larger when you can find the normal things which form a strange, fun, or unusual progression.

If you are looking for inspiration; try starting with some perspiration. Taking my camera for a walk lets me test my methods, make the inevitable errors because I’m new, and then head back out the next day to try again.
