One of the things I really like about traveling is finding those pockets of local color, still life unique to these different surroundings. A couple of days ago we visited a lovely little town nearby, where I found a number of things to photograph. Just look at the colors and textures in this photo, taken outside a shop which looked just as inviting as this colorful display.
Another thing I like is finding texture and pattern behind the color. The stones of this building were warm and brown, yet by removing this color you see the architecture better, I think, and the benches jump out at you.
Though we are actually waiting for a new baby, there is time to explore and refresh and take time to photograph new surroundings. I needed a creative refresher and am enjoying this opportunity to grab some new shots.
What are you photographing right now?
