Walk 100 steps from your doorstep and get a shot of what you see.
Even if I am behind schedule, I feel it is important for my own professional development to complete my weekly photo challenge consistently and regularly. Last week's assignment was to capture a simple image right in my neighborhood. Somehow I am not too happy with the result. It is only a fulfillment of the task, but it is missing enthusiasm, excitement and a unique point of view. I feel like I am standing in a large crowd and just shouting with everyone else. I cherish the concept to capture something new and worthwhile weekly, but none of these images are anything special. They are "just" OK.
Can anyone suggest to me how I could have approached the project to get a better photo? Can I do anything to improve any of these pictures?
