I have been caught up in the job that I wish was second to photography - it would be nice to have a hobby as a job (sort of).
Anyway, since we last talked I have run the local Scott Kelby Photowalk (yesterday 23rd of August).
For those not familiar with photowalks, see here/.
It is a lot of fun (as I found out) and well worth it getting out - challenged by how others take photos. I have to point out one of the guys - Glenn - who showed us all how to do it. He just seemed to pick the right things (I followed him for a bit!).
The trick is to give ideas a bit of thought before you make it a photo - just compare his and my shots at the Photowalk Flickr site/ . Particularly the ones of the fire hydrant. I avoid flash where I can (still not yet confident with it) - he was using it for fill.
Really good to get challenged in the way we take photos - otherwise we will never improve.
So before I sign off, I will leave you with my favourite photo from the day.
