The many angles of interesting….

This past Sunday, I went riding around in search for some inspiration..I rode by an area that I had already visited on my bike with B and tried to find different things to photograph or should I say different ways to photograph it.  I came across these old mailboxes (I love old things) and I began shooting them.  Once I was done trying to capture it from every possible angle that I could think of,…I had accumulated about 30 shots of this mailbox.   I kind of chuckled and thought, how many ways can I capture the charm of this mailbox…and so, here is the subject of my lens:SONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSC SONY DSC

It’s so hard to choose my favorite because every angle highlights a different feature depending on how I position my lens.  Just as if I were shooting a supermodel and trying to find his/her most interesting angles 😉  Sometimes it requires a huge effort..i.e, subjecting myself to bug bites and crouching down on branches and bugs..ewww.  But If I shoot it from an angle where the sun perfectly complements the brown leaves and shines all it’s shadows away, it’s really quite beautiful and so worth it.  If I choose to not focus on the mailboxes and allowing the blur, it feels a little more abstract and mysterious but not any less beautiful.  Totally subjective.  SONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSC
