Yesterday I had some free time in the afternoon so I decided to drive around out in the country and take some photos. There are few things I love more than being out in the middle of nowhere and feeling the quiet around me. I drove to Abington and found a road that I had never been down before so I went down it. The road continued for some time and I was soon in an area that I had never been before. The excitement of being lost was starting to set in and I knew before long that I would be at the mercy of the constant left in order to find a road that I was familiar with.
I got out into the deep country where the roads weren’t so smooth and eventually came across an old school building that I had never heard of. I turned left at the school building and continued down the road and eventually I started to recognize some things. A few minutes later there I was, back in Abington.
I didn’t take nearly as many photos as I expected. One thing that I’ve noticed lately is that my eye is improving. Before I would find anything that looked at all interesting and then take a photo of it, thinking very little about how to frame the shot. Yesterday I found myself not even stopping at some of the places that I would have photographed before. I did see a horse out in pasture, and I couldn’t resist taking some pictures. They turned out rather well, and I’ll have them on here soon.
I’ve been going through my gallery lately as well to try and get rid of some of the photos that don’t serve a purpose or are generally just ugly. I really want to improve as a photographer and the way to do that is to keep taking pictures, so I need to make room.
