My adventure in photography getting a bit more wider since I accepted the truth that I have the obligation of carrying a camera with me where ever I go. This is relatively freeing because I don't have to make plans to go out shooting anymore - since I have my camera with me I'm always out shooting when I go out.
This makes possible to me to take photography inside of grocery stores in the small town I'm living. Best part of living in a place like this that people are (at least some of them) are not uptight as the ones in a big city and they don't care much about taking photos inside of the grocery stores.
That allowed me to make a nice collection and I hope they'll become useful for customers too.
As a science fiction fan since I was a little kid - the most impressive moment for me in a story was always the moment we come across with bits and pieces of evidence that there was once a great civilization there.
Gigantic city ruins on the horizon of a distant planet is an idea that gives me the chills every time I think about it. Beholding the signs of an unknown civilization is exciting and inspiring.
Desert with its majestic vastness reminds me the ocean and space - and it has also a special place in all the spiritual teachings across the world. Sometimes symbolizes the loneliness, sometimes wisdom, sometimes emptiness and sometimes peace. To me desert is definitely a great source of inspiration just like the oceans.
I heard this from Jay Maisel centuries ago. And I'm trying to do it even its a hustle - since I carry my camera in a shoulder bag and advantage of living in a small town, no one approached to say "you can't take photos here!"... They mostly like to think that I'm a journalist. I've even took shots inside of grocery stores.
But I feel that a range finder type of camera would be much better choice than a big heavy dSLR.
On the other hand snapshots of course doesn't cut it. I'm following another idea from Jay Maisel and look for the light, color and gesture even though I prefer to shoot in black and white most of the time. I'm trying act more like Robert Capa and Gary Winogrand rather than a someone with a digital SLR.
