The Neighborhood


Today, friend and fellow photographer, Jason Schlachet, reminded me how rich in imagery our own neighborhoods can be. I've always known this and often preached the notion to other photographers. But I do find myself occasionally lamenting the fact I no longer travel and thus believe my inspiration is impaired and my creativity stifled.

Then a day comes along when I pick up my camera on my way out the door to run errands and as I walk through the neighborhood I see some rather interesting and sometimes down right amazing things.

Again it's all about seeing, being aware of your environment and being open to considering new perspectives.
