When it comes to Flickr and its social aspects I try to practice appreciation towards those that share their kindness with me. So when one comments on a photo in kind or adds a photo of mine as a favorite I try and do so back. When I do this I look through their photos and find one I truly like and that speaks to me.
Now with that said, many times I find photos that are quite interesting and curious as to how they got the look they got? At the very least I can look at their EXIF data to see how they started before any editing but more and more I find the data is not there because the user has turned this option off and I wonder why. I’m just curious because it’s nice to help one learn from. When you see something that sparks your imagination you wonder how such a thing was done and it’s nice to learn from others even if not directly. It’s also sad when one makes an interesting photo and they write nothing about it.
I don’t know, maybe it’s just a weird personal thing of mine but sometimes it interests me to know how but I guess it’s none of my business. Sure, I could write them and ask but on a day when you see so many lacking any information it becomes too much work.
I am still shooting the two rolls of film through the old toy cameras I have been writing about. Nearly done both rolls but still taking my time with them. I don’t know why specifically but I just don’t feel like rushing them. I want to see what can come out of them and would rather use them for something I guess interesting rather than every day moments in life of whatever. Maybe I am missing something or maybe I am picky.
Never the less I have been shooting a few other things. Nothing big, nothing major and nothing worth gloating over. Just shooting to shoot and to enjoy myself and not to impress anyone. Nothing I feel to post as I really am not into posting everything let alone share everything of what I shoot. While I don’t mind those that shoot and share all they wish to share sometimes when you go through their galleries either on a hosted site like Flickr or they have their own domain, when they post “everything” it just gets to be too much. At least for me but it’s only my opinion and thus makes me neither right nor wrong, it’s all personal preference.
And of what I have shot my personal preference to display is this shot.
