Most of us have ‘themes” for our photos. Again and again we focus our cameras on the same subjects. Maybe it’s our children, or family get-togethers, landscapes, or vacations snaps… We often fall into a groove and only bring out the camera for those occasions. What a hard time we have yanking ourselves out of our comfortable routines to concentrate on something totally different. So it goes with us. We love to photograph landscapes, birds, and flowers, but, every once in awhile, we do find other subjects so compelling that even we can’t resist.
The advantages of focusing your camera on non-human subjects are that they’re usually cute, not concerned about privacy, aren’t self-conscious, and won’t object. No mugging for the camera to worry about!
We’ll try in the future to be more creative with our photography. Now that we use digital cameras, why limit ourselves?
