One thing I have learned about myself over the past year or two is very simple. I like fence posts as a subject for photography. For one very simple reason, fence posts don't move. After a long day of sitting inside, I decide to go outside and go shoot some wildlife. The problem I have found is that it takes a lot of patients to do so. Don't get me wrong, I grew up hunting and fishing. I will spend as much time as I have to catch that big fish or see that huge buck. But for some reason when I get a camera in my hands. I lose that "skill" of having patients. Or it could be that I can’t get within 50yrds of anything without it running off no matter how slow I move. So here I am after walking around the woods for about an hour with not much luck. And I see this beautiful fence post just sitting there holding his ground. Click, satisfaction in some small macro way.
I’m convinced beauty is all around us, it’s all in perspective.
