PC#14 – Evolution of a challenge

Over December, I have been reviewing my experiences with my photo challenge.

I’ve found it a very useful exercise for many reasons, including:

  • learning to use my phone camera
  • developing my ‘eye’ for a shot that will work with my phone (a LOT of trial and error here!)
  • learning more about the photos I enjoy taking. Turns out I enjoy taking architectural and pattern/texture/line shots way more than the natural landscape photos I thought I ought to enjoy.

It has definitely been a challenge at times; both with working to a theme and remembering to take photos on non-work days.

Accoridngly, I have chosen to adjust the challenge to suit myself (because I can!)

Welcome to the newly evolved challenge:

THE PHOTO COMMUTE

What it is:

I will still be posting unmodified photos taken with my mobile phone camera. The new bit is that these will be whatever takes my eye as I walk to and from work (or anywhere else). No theme and no pressure to take a photo on non-work days (when I was forgetting anyway).

So, without further ado, here’s the first batch of Photo Commute snaps from my run-up to Christmas:
