Someone has estimated that there will be 1.4 trillion (1,400,000,000) photos taken in the world this year. That is a lot of megapixels; most of which will never be seen again.
With so many images, virtually everything in the world is being photographed. My personal photographic challenge is to figure out how to photograph the same thing everyone else does, but differently. I am always working for a more creative or artistic approach to a subject that interests me.
Having said that, this week’s photo of the Eiffel Tower is fairly common. However, a client saw it on our website and ordered a large print for Christmas. It brought back great memories of their trip to Paris. This reminded me that photos are a great communication device. They transmit ideas, evoke a memory, and sometimes, just bring a smile to your face.
Photographer Chris and painter Robin Rohwer each week share a painting or photograph that captured their interest in hopes that it will also capture yours. They have a small studio and gallery in the Phoenix Building at 418 South Gay Street where you can stop and see their work. Their website is www.ChristopherRobinArts.com.
