The buddy challenges are going well. We could have many more members enter these but for some reason they don't like the effort. But the effort is more about challenging yourself and your photography. It's also about your skill in assessing someone else's photo and making a useful critique. It's what we should have been doing long ago. The formula is seemingly perfect.
And so to the title of this post..."On your doorstep" is the theme of next month's challenge. Photos taken from near you home. To be honest I'm already looking around and finding this one a struggle. I don't find my "doorstep" that attractive photographically speaking. Over the years the times I've either written technique articles (or proofed, or read) on the same subject, yet now it's my turn to "practise what I preached" and I'm struggling.
So I wonder A) if there really is nothing to photograph in Worksop or B) If I've just become so used to everything that it no longer offers any excitement.
I'm tempted to say A (if you've been to Worksop you'd know why), but I wonder what those feel like who live in beautiful locations. I often think this when going to tourist spots and see locals milling around seemingly unaware of the beauty around them. Do you become blase about your familiar surrounds?
