There’s nothing wrong in an aesthetic sense with the header photo, I’m not calling it out as a good picture, but it is one of those pictures that I would routinely take whilst out and about on my morning walk.
That’s the thing about my morning walks, they are very “samey”. In fact, I think it was Einstein who defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result. It kind of almost holds true, except there are a couple of variables not least of which is the weather.
I follow a route most mornings. I do have a couple of minor variations, but it is pretty much the same. I’m not bored with the walk, it’s very convenient and suits my purpose. The point is that whilst I sometimes notice a detail but I do wonder how many opportunities that I am missing. I think it would be quite interesting to do the route with another person who is both a keen photographer and good. Just to see what opportunities they would find.
This all drives toward this very active perception I have that I have a not very active imagination or photographers eye, and it is that, not the walk, or the place that doesn’t have the opportunities.
One problem is, what can I do about it? This a bit frustrating.
