Since I started blogging earlier this year, I have been looking at more photography on the internet than ever before.  As I look at the work of photographers from other parts of the country I live in and from around the world, I often find myself wishing I lived somewhere more photogenic.  However, just when I am ready to give up on the area where I live, I find something that renews my love for photographing my hometown.  I suppose the old saying is right.  The grass isn’t always greener on the other side.

Most likely, if I lived elsewhere, I would quickly tire of my choies for scenery to photograph.  I imagine that some people look at my images and have the same thoughts as I do.  We always seem to want what someone else has.

I am going to make every effort to appreciate the places I do have to photograph in my hometown.  Every hometown is unique in its own way and I need to keep working hard to bring that to the people that view my photographs.  In other words, I need to quit complaining and get out and shoot.

  1. I know exactly what you’re talking about. I’m constantly feeling like there is nothing in my town to photograph…until I look around. Sometimes I forget to simply open my eyes and look for what I want

  2. patch perfect grass seed
