I enjoy taking photos. These days it’s mostly family snapshots with an iPhone. Over the summer I’ve been working on a side-project, photos of worn and peeling paint:
Visits to art galleries and museums are great place to capture interesting images (although I haven’t done much of this lately because of the 2020 Lockdown).
I went through an amateur street photography phase a while ago. Take it from me, street photography is incredibly difficult.
I’m drawn to the same subjects: people in streets, artworks, buildings, graffiti, close-ups of worn paint, and the natural landscapes that I walk through (especially when they have personal resonance).
In some ways, writers write the same stories again and again, and photographers take the same photos. We keep returning to the things that fascinate us.
