Do you ever just play with your camera?
Taking photos of found objects?
From different distances and angles?
Using the existing natural light?
Maybe even adjusting your camera settings, if you feel brave?
These photos were all taken at Gold Rush Days in Rochester, MN, last year. Paint brushes in a wooden tote sitting atop a stack of rusty vintage trash cans...a simple display and an instant source of photography inspiration. The textures, colors, and lighting were fun to work with and beautiful in their own way.
Perfect? Nope. Fun? Yup.
Have you had fun capturing anything interesting and/or beautiful to you with your camera lately?
