Izb over at Yeah, but is it art? hits on a problem I have too.
“obstacle number two; wanting to take pictures in places where you don’t stick out like a sore thumb.”
I suffer from the same affliction which is why I’ve hardly taken any photos this year (so far). Another key issue for me, and one in which I should really follow the example set by my above quoted friend, is lack of confidence. I’m slowly learning how to get the most from my camera, but having the technical knowledge is one thing, applying it to real-life scenarios is another.
I think a revamp of my ‘gallery’ is called for to give me the spur I need to pick up my camera again. Having the ‘evidence’ more easily available to see and critique by others, and myself, should do the trick.
In the meantime I’m off to photoblogs.org (well not right now… maybe later…)
