A New Photography Project: 100 Steps From Home
Art is not to be found by touring to Egypt, China, or Peru; if you cannot find it at your own door, you will never find it. – Emerson
This is a topic that has been on my mind for some time. Photography is flooded with images from far away places and many think that you need to visit distant and exotic lands to create images. Well, until you do go to those places, don’t pass up the opportunity to photograph and observe the beauty that is so close to home. I guarantee that if you look around your house, there are beautiful scenes to capture. This is true no matter where you live, whether in a city or a cabin in the woods or on the beach.
I’ll be pursuing this project further over the coming months and I made one image this morning that was 2 steps from my front door. It rained this morning and patches of blue sky were breaking through. The wind has blown many leaves off the aspens and this one caught my eye. I’ll write another post with several images together as I find them:)
