Walk for two minutes. Stop. Take a photo.

Today’s Daily Shoot assignment was as challenging as it was odd.  Today’s assignment is: Grab your camera and walk 2 minutes in any direction. Stop. Find a photo worth making from where you stopped and post it.

The point of this is that there is probably an interesting subject anywhere, you just need to look for it.  After my two minute stroll at oDesk’s office complex, I found myself surrounded by the 101 freeway, some uninteresting plants, grass, and the sign for the complex.  The sign has a piece of glass behind it to add some drama.  It also reflected the back of the sign nicely.  While not my favorite shot by any means, I am reasonably happy with it considering the constraints of this assignment.


Sunset in Menlo Park

Snapped this while leaving the office in Meno Park, CA.  I like the streetlight right in the sunburst and the strong sense of perspective that the clouds provide.

Daily Shoot #24: High Contrast

Assignment: Black and white photographs are a classic look. Make one today and go for high contrast. Dark blacks and bright whites.
