Taking a picture everyday is good practise. It helps us become better photographers in many ways. We all know this. Whether or not you are officially in a "365" group, just a photo (or more!) a day not only helps us to see the world around us in new ways but lets us capture everyday moments to reflect back on. I enjoy looking back through previous "365" photos and even though I am not officially part of a "365", I still take a photo a day.
The problem becomes, how to keep the pictures fresh. How do I take pictures of different things even if I am in the same place day after day. How many pictures of the same thing can I stand? But maybe this is not really a problem after all.
Because I do take a picture of the same thing. Everyday. And when I look at them, I discover they are not the same at all.
I always have my phone with me as I walk each (almost) morning and I take mostly the same route each time. I do have a few favorite vantage points that I always look at more intently as I pass.
Each time, something catches my eye. Each time something is different about the locations. Similar but different and never to be the same again.
So, why not take the same picture again and again? It's never the same. There is always something different about it. Something magic about each place.
The way I see things..
something is always different, something has changed, whether it is the place or it is me
appreciating the difference in each shot takes a moment, a moment to remember being there, to feel it, smell it be a part of it again, it's a moment of time captured forever
and there's nothing wrong with that
How about you? Are you on repeat? Do you take the same picture over and over? Don't you love it?
about my pictures-
first 3 were taken at one location, different days
second three were taken at another location, different days
