I’m struggling with this challenge.
Just one photo each day doesn’t sound too hard but what if you have a cracker of a day and take 2 or 3 that you are happy with? You can’t save one for a day when you can’t be bothered.* You have to get something every day. It’s only day 5 and I’m exhausted.
Naturally I’ve got my favourite subjects I can fall back on when I really need to but I don’t want to exhaust those too early on. Plus I wanted this to challenge me to take new photos, not repeat old ones.
Tonight I lugged my gear to a vacant block on Rode Road where there’s a reasonable view of the city and surrounds. It’s EKKA time in Brisbane and I thought I’d try to get a photo of the fireworks but frustratingly they don’t do fireworks on the first night. So instead I photographed a big, bare tree on the other side of the road before lugging my stuff home again.
Poor durdlin. What a whinger.
*Well, I can’t. Other people might be able to… It’s not like anyone is checking to make sure you follow the rules. But you know how much I like to follow rules. Cheating is not an option for this durdlin.
