A Lovely City

August 2, 2017

This is the second shot I’ve posted of – what I think is – one of the most photogenic city in the world (from this past spring):

Okay, here’s my rule about being a tourist and taking photos: don’t waste your time taking photos that someone’s already taken and likely done a way better job than you can ever hope to. Like shots of the Eiffel Tower or the Grand Canyon. Concentrate on the faces of the people you’re with and reminders of the many small moments you want to remember most – like the swirly design in your cappuccino made by that zany barista in Crown Heights.

ACTION ITEM: Get your vaycay glamour shots on Google Images.

Here There Be Faeries (slightly NSFW)

I was out having keys made when my eyes caught a blur of color in the dry grass.

I looked closer and there they were.

It’s amazing how much of life happens when we’re too busy to notice. There’s a saying in photography to “move your feet”, meaning find a new perspective on the image you’re capturing – go higher, lower, from behind a tree – move your feet.

ACTION ITEM: Look closer today. Move your feet.
