One of the photo blogs I read daily (see links in the right–hand column for some) write about how they (professionals) are always seeing potential photos wherever they look. It happened to me yesterday as I was driving back home from a brief photo–shoot, where I was experimenting with some new techniques. As I drove past a railroad crossing, out of the corner of my eye I saw this view (in color of course) with the “S” curve of the track, winding through unmelted snow with late afternoon shadows. I drove a bit further and then said, I need to go back and get that image—it would make a nice B&W shot. And, it did. Lesson is, when you have your camera, be on the lookout for a good photo composition. And, when you don’t have a camera, pretend that you do, and think about how you’d compose what you see.
