Good topic. And, hey, you as Bogey would be cool. I never saw a Bogart film...but love this song.
Anyway. As you know I take a lot of photos but I think they lack depth. Sort of "same old same old." Birds and scenery. In Feb 2006, we went to Mexico as volunteers to do some work with less fortunate children. A few days before we were scheduled to leave, the project manager asked me to be the photographer. Instead of participating in the daily chores, I simply took photos. At each stop, I slithered of the bus and simply tried to blend in to the masses and I took photos...of anything and everything. It was a treat for me and the other participants appreciated my efforts. It was most enjoyable and I had free rein and did not have to ask permission. I just took photos.
In our society today it is so difficult to shoot "street" scenes for fear of offending people.
I supposed the opportunities are endless in our minds...it is more difficult when it involves others. I have a large collection of cloud photos..maybe something not wise to suggest to Brits..as you tend to get a lot of clouds, right? Nonetheless, weather and clouds are great subjects. (I am just rambling along here...
Pat was doing vanatis
a while back. (Pat .. sorry, I never got mine done yet.
) And she and Mr. W were doing parodies of famous paintings. They were top-drawer.
