When we travel I seldom go anywhere without my camera. Even in our hotel at breakfast I sometimes manage to find some interesting things to aim my camera at. One morning on our recent cruise I walked around the ship, looking for interesting little scenes. The car I posted at Christmas was an obvious subject, but sometimes it is the not-so-obvious things that make the most interesting photographs. I’m often aware of people looking at me and wondering what I am taking a picture of. Sometimes they ask.

Wow! Great series of art and what the photographer’s eye sees. I like that you carry your camera as if an appendage. That’s how I see mine. My camera goes with me for a quick run to the grocery store. I take it for walks. I like that some images are very abstract due to your crop. Great vision, Tom!
Thank you, Monte. I don’t carry my camera much at home, although I probably could/should. When among other picture-taking tourists it is a little easier, although since fewer people use a camera these days it’s a little harder to hide.
I love these. I’d bet over half of my photos are non-location specific. You’d never guess where I was when I took them because they’re like these, more abstract and looking for the beauty in an object or texture rather than the ‘scene’. It does little for capturing memories but it’s what I’m drawn to. Glad you posted these.
Some of my favorite photos are those that are “from” a place but not “of” a place. It helps add a little flavor to the otherwise snapshotty photos that I also take.
“of” and “from” yeah, that says it.
Nice series. The difference between you and me… I would have used each of these as a post rather than all at once. 🙂
I find that putting together a group then telling a story about them works best, although the single photo approach is certainly valid. Plus you get paid for more posts that way! 😉
I’ve had similar experiences, passers-by wondering what the heck I am photographing. 🙂 Images like this show how much we can see if we are paying attention.
Very true, Mark. I don’t usually care to call attention to myself, but somehow am OK with people thinking I might be a little “off.” 😉
