And Now For Something Completely Different...

Today I want to have a little bit of fun.  Do something unexpected.  Today I am going to share with you a little series I call "Things I Found in a Parking Lot".  I use this series to demonstrate how photogenic our surroundings can be.  You don't need an expensive trip to an exotic location to have great things to photograph.  I challenge you to keep you camera in the car with you for one week.  If you see something cool on the side of the road, pull over and photograph it.  (Assuming it's safe to do so.  Use your noggins folks.)  Practice the settings we learned about last week.  Use your aperture and shutter priority settings.  Notice the things around you and make great art out of them.  Here are some examples of things I found in parking lots during my routine travels.  These include images from restaurants, an orthodontist office, a government building, and an antique mall.









Where do you go everyday?  Did you even realize there were treasures next to where you park your car? Feel free to share your own discoveries in the comments. Let's go make the ordinary look extraordinary!
