121/365 – Danger

Originally uploaded by curiousillusion

So as I’ve said in my project 365 page, taking a picture a day can mean a lot of different things for a lot of different people. For some people it’s about documenting their every day life (probably especially useful for people who have children), for others it’s about improving their skills. For me, I’m interested in improving my skills and pushing myself to do different things.

I’ve seen quite a few people take pictures of trash and make it look like it ought to be hanging on a wall, in a frame. Other people can take part of a bench and frame it in a way that looks amazing. And that’s one of the things that I’m striving to learn how to do… come up with unique ways to take pictures of ordinary things.

Oh and PS… when I wrote the word “ought”, the lines from The Lorax jumped into my head:
Boy: “What’s an unless?”
The Once-ler: [sung] Just a far away word/just a far away thought…
Boy: A thought? About what? About something I ought?
The Once-ler: [sung] Well… A thought about something that somebody ought.

Which leads me to one of my favorite quotes: “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing’s going to get better. It’s not.”

Wow, what a random post… I feel like I went all over the place. Sorry!
