How often do you hear that (fill in the blank) isn't a beautiful city. There isn't anything to photograph in it. I challenge each of you to begin looking at your city in a different manner. Look for the strong lines and contrasts that exist in many different scenes. Challenge yourself to get up earlier than normal and take a photo of a sunrise. Stay up later at night and capture the sunset. Go out on a dreary day and notice the beauty in the scene. I shot this photo on a very dreary rainy day. The sun would peak through every so often but never long enough to cast any defining shadows.
Take one lens and start walking around looking for photos you see and feel in your heart and mind. Before you snap the shutter, know what you want the image to look like.
This image was shot in manual mode.
Have fun and enjoy the beauty of life!
