252/366 Angles, Lines and Curves
As I limp along to the finish line with a manuscript that for the most part has consumed my entire life for the last month or so-it has been hard to focus on much of anything. When I was outside earlier, I was remembering the architecture surveys I used to do and how I would document every detail, usually trying to do it in an artsy way as opposed to the straightforward documenting required by the state agencies I worked with-they really didn’t care too much about the quality of the images, as long as it looked passable. I remember one of the first project managers I worked for looking at some of my photographs and going, “what is this?!” as I tried to explain the light was just perfect for that angle.
He told me to stick to the guidelines, please.
Anyway, I still needed to come up with something for today and it might seem rather pedestrian, but it reminded me of the adage that I try to go by on a daily basis: Nothing is ordinary. That can carry a photographer a long way. It does not mean necessarily that you hit it every time, but it is a great reminder of the abundant world that is out there.
