Springtime Photography

It’s been a while since I’ve entered anything in the weekly DPChallenge. I hadn’t taken any shots that fit their criteria and during the winter I didn’t feel like going out to get them!

This week, when I looked at the site, the open competition was “Abandoned Buildings.” As it turns out, there’s a barn being torn down to make way for an assisted living center near here. I had been spying it even before I read about the competition. It was sunny today – a perfect photo day, so I decided to give it a try.

Here are some of my more interesting shots. I shudder (pun intended) to think how many I took and how digital has really changed the quantity of picture taking, which will probably lead to an increase in the quality of picture taking over the long run.

Each of these photos is clickable to see a higher quality, larger version.

  1. I’m not so sure that the overall quality of picture taking could be improved by the digital movement. While there’s no arguing that it’s cheaper, the gratification is more immediate, and sheer quantity is bound to make at least some individuals better at it— etc. etc.—so much amazing stuff has been done for so long, by people who didn’t need the quick gratification factor in order to practice their art. There will be people who’ll discover they are good because of digital… and then there are the throngs who would not be bothering much with cameras in the first place, if not for digital.
