A couple of days ago I got up early in the morning, grabbed my phone, my backpack and my bike and then went out to explore some new references.
I knew what I wanted – some photos of a closed down diner – but on the way I just had to stop several times only to be amazed by the surroundings.
I’m so fortunate to live where I live and knowing what opportunities lies outside my door just make me embrace it even more. I shoot with my phone and I don’t bother to manipulate it in Photoshop, etc. as I just play with the camera settings on my phone instead. It saves me time and it’s just more fun as I can adjust my settings while I take photos or recording. And my main goal is not to take the perfect photo or record the perfect video, but instead my focus is on how I can create content that is of the best use for reference and that will guide me through my projects.
Anyway, on my roadtrip to the place with the closed down diner I was able to take photos of other tings as well. I had the river in my sight as well as a couple of bridges over the water and also the house where I live. So, in addition to the closed down diner I also got to shoot other references as well. On my bike I could really feel the breeze and the silence with only the birds singing and tweeting, the water running down the river and a couple of cars on the street from time to time. It was truly a great morning for me.
I hope you will enjoy my future reference as they will contain a lot from this journey.
As I crossed a small bridge two ducks flew over it. I was too late to record it but it was a spectacular sight. Maybe next time..
Oh, and if you expected to see a photo of the closed down diner, well you have to wait for the future references. But I think it’s worht it…
