Sometimes it is a lot of fun to just go outside and take Fotos of random things. I really like to do that every now and then.
Taking Fotos of your everyday surroundings is also a good way to hone your Skills as a Photographer. That way, you learn to see the world with different Eyes.
Complacency has been the downfall for many good Photographers. It is never a good thing to be stuck in your ways and refuse to change. Even if what you are doing is good, it can always get better.
And sometimes I am stuck in what I am doing. Luckily, I have Friends and Family around that tell me when it is time to move on and do something different for a change. Sometimes I throw my self out into the Woods.
I believe that it is important to be able to find the good in any Situation, even if it does not present itself right away. And maybe the Fotos I took today are not a really good metaphor for that, as the weather was actually quite beautiful.
But I would have also gone out to shoot some Fotos if it had rained. You can get some of the best Street Photography, and of any other kind of Photography, in the Rain. Of course you would need to protect your gear, but there are endless possibilities to do that.
I also really like it to go out at Night when it is quite foggy. The Fotos you can get in adverse Conditions can be some of the best you ever take. And you will definitely know what you have gone through to get to where you are.
Anyhow, I believe that it is important for a Photographer to be able to shoot in most, if not all of the Situations he might encounter. Even if you choose not to share your work, it is always a great feeling to know what you can do instead of having to guess what could have been.
