Since around 1900 everyday people have been able to take everyday photos of their surroundings. The invention of the box brownie was possibly the start of "snap shot" photography and as time has passed since then more and more technology has been invented to allow even the least technically capable person take a photo. We are now at a stage that even our mobile phones are capable of taking passable photography. The up shot of this is that everyday possibly millions of photos are taken that will only ever be viewed once or twice again until they are eventually lost by the breakdown of a HDD or the loss of a backup cd etc. The funny thing is that when we look back at photos taken in the days of our child hood or even back further back to the 70's 60's 50's 40's etc (i was born in the 80's ). Some of the most fascinating things are of what at the time might have been considered fairly mundane - the lack of cars on the road, or the tram on the high street that is long since gone etc... it is also very apparent to me that many of us are inspired by these images, i often try to make my photos look subtly vintage, in fact it is a big part of my style... especially when it comes to wedding photography.. The passing of time is fundamentally fascinating to all humans, tv programmes, books, articles on the internet about history and archaeology and antiques and relics are everywhere ... yet we allow our lives to pass with barely a thought for the now, we are always thinking about the future or indeed reminiscing about the past. With that in mind, i would like to encourage people to take one photo everyday and post it in this thread... it doesn't matter what it is of; your car, your dog, the street outside your house, the high street in your town ... it really doesn't matter! what does matter is that it is a moment in time... a moment in your time... that is after all in the simplest terms what photography is about. The rules are as follows 1.no post process 2.state a brief description of what the photo is of and if it is relevant its location 3.state the camera that you used That's it... i just want to see basic photography direct from the camera of your surroundings as they are as you see them today, tomorrow and every day from now on. i really hope that this forum lasts, in fact if it lasted long enough for people to be able to look back even as little as 5 years i think that these photos could indded become the most interesting on here! to start this off i am going to post a photo that to most people will be meaningless, but it is in fact a photo i have taken a 100 times or more... it is the view out of the shop that i work in and have worked in for 5 years (now just 1 day a week). i have teken it so many times as it is taken with most new cameras that come into the shop ... on this occasion i have taken it with my iphone 4 a seemingly boring photo, but look at what can be seen, a ford focus, an oldish one, but one that can be seen on the roads almost everyday... the clothes of the people walking past, the Worcester festival banner in the background... mundane now... fascinating in 50 years... im not trying to elevate this photo to anything more than it currently is ... i accept that its pretty dull now... and there is a chance that it might get lost along with all those other throw away images... it is of now... little more... and if it does survive it will be interesting along way down the the road... and so will all of your contributions! so thats that... it has begun, i will be taking a photo, perhaps not every day, but when ever i think to to post in this thread... i would love it if you did the same.
