I posted a few days ago four images, shot with two different cameras, of essentially the same subject. Had another pair (below), which had me a little worried – was I really only seeing the exact same things every day? Is that why I did this, as well?
When I was shooting, I tried to take a different route to work every day. When I was going someplace I had been before, unless I was pressed for time (not like that ever happens at a newspaper) I tried to find a different path. It was my way of seeing more of my community and, uh, maybe padding the mileage a little.
But, really, it was to help me see. I’d occasionally find something along the new route that would lead me to a story or photo that we wouldn’t have gotten if I hadn’t gone the long way.
I need to get back to that.
Maybe it’s the size of the dew drops, but I think the older camera made a nicer file here.
