A "dirty" perspective"

by Jay November. 15, 2010 4038 views

I know that dirty talk is just not gentlemanly, but I can't help but indulge a bit here. It's all in the name of my love of perspective, albeit a dirty one.

It can be so interesting. Recently, while recovering from an illness and therefore being out of work for a number of days, I woke to a beautiful morning and had garnered enough energy for the first time in days to be able to get out and take a walk around my little district on the outskirts of Stuttgart. The sun was no where near its daily high point, so I was able to get some nice lighting along the furrows of the fields, readied for fall and winter.

I was clicking away while others, also out for a breath of fresh air, looked at me like I had two heads or something. You could read their minds: “What in heavens name is that fool doing taking pictures of … DIRT?!?”

I love the attention we photographers get from passers-by when we see a “photo” they don't. Sometimes they come alongside and with a funny look on their faces, try to see what it is I see worth photographing. On this specific day, it drew some funny faces.

That's all. I just wanted to expose the more dirty side of me.

I won't let it happen again. I promise.

Thank you. ;-)

You know, PB has RULES against dirty posts like this!

Good idea you had, I like the way you decided to crop them all. And I've decided that being willing to look like an idiot in front of others is part of the burden photographers bear. :-)

Oh you dirty photographer!!!
LOL. Wonderful collection!!

Here in Prague you would probably not get "strange looks", because people are used that photographers take photos of everything:))
