A Quiet Conversation

I often wonder if I should post images like this. They aren’t the type of photos that will win awards or grace the cover of a magazine. Nope, they are images of quiet little places off of the beaten path, places that you might never notice. I think about this often. I actually worry about it. Do I drive people away from here, because the image is simple and not spectacular? After pondering this for a long time, I’ve come to the conclusion that I make and share images because that is what I do. On top of that, the people that visit here on a regular basis also like these images. Even better, the people that visit here that like these types of images are very cool! No kidding, when I talk to people that I’ve met through this site, we click immediately. So I’ve concluded that sharing these images and the many others I have shared over that last 4 years (some simple and some spectacular) is a good thing…no…it’s a great thing! Why, because I’ve met a lot of great people doing so. Thanks to everyone who visits here and allows these little adventures to be part of your day.

  1. I once worried about the same thing Justin but continue to post some images that I like but may not be spectacular to others. At the end of the day, our photos speak to who we are and I think that is more important that getting extra comments, likes or pluses. I like the serenity of this photo and would love to sit there and contemplate life.

    I take the same type of pictures also and love it. A good exercise in composition.

    When I show 2 or 3 prints people are just ‘like’ them but if I have a booklet of 25-30 pictures they see my point of view and ‘love’ the series.

    Justin, keep them coming please!!!!

    • Thanks for the note Roger! I’m glad you like the photos and I will do my best to keep it up. I would love to see your work as well…feel free to share a link or two. Have a great day…


  3. I enjoy all your pictures. The simple and the spectacular. Thanks for sharing. :-)

  4. Yup, you keep me motivated to be a better photographer, and 95% of the time I open your email because I wonder “what is it this time?”. (The other 5% is when the inbox is crazy and you sadly slide down the importance scale. Hey, it’s life, right?) Keep the images YOU like coming…cause that’s why we take the time. :)
