The Beauty of Pathways

The Beauty of Pathways

Sometimes it is fun to go out and focus on a particular subject to photograph…. Really concentrating on taking a set of specific photos can be a great challenge. It also forces you to really look around and see interesting things as you are CameraWalking

Several years ago, I started photographing manhole and drainage covers.  So many communities have celebrated their history by casting their covers with really lovely images. I love this cover I took on a walk in Trondheim.

Using covers to relay specific messages has become very popular. This drain cover is warning people about putting pollutants down the drain. As a photographer,  you get to see these interesting objects through your lens and give them new life.

Deciding to focus on boats can open up a terrific collection of beautiful and intriguing photos.  On our recent trip to Norway,  I was drawn to the incredible variety of boats we saw in every port.  I decided I would do my best to tell a story of the coastline of this amazing country as I walked  along the docks of the towns we passed through. These are just a few shots of hundreds of marine subjects I took along the coastal route of the Hurtigruten

Taking photos of just part of a subject can become a lovely piece!

We found beautiful old boats that are in use every day in so many of the Norwegian cities and towns …

As you build your collections of photo topics, you can get really creative.  Watch for interesting signs,  natural shapes,  sculptures,  shadows,  even old cars or junk yards!   The subjects are endless, if you truly open to your  eyes and use your imagination… These collections can be made into wonderful photo books.  We like to use both Blurb and Shutterfly.  A collection of intriguing manhole covers would be a great conversation starter.  You might want to give it a try! Start shooting and sorting your photos into key collections. After awhile, you will be amazed where this will take you in your creativity and adventure…Have fun!
