A while ago a friend of mine asked me some questions about photography. She wanted to know more about it, was thinking about taking up a course and was interested in my opinion. At one point she asked me what sort of pictures I liked best and if I had a favorite subject to photograph. I said that my interests varied from time to time and that I was always willing to try something new as regards technique but as for the subject, I was interested in everything.
She insisted, though. She said that everybody had a favorite subject and I said I didn`t. She reformulated her question and asked what type of pictures I was used to taking but I had no answer.
Today, while I was looking at some old photos, I remembered this conversation and I realized that most of my pictures were taken in the streets, which makes me what? a “street photographer”? I don`t know, I love the “treasures” I find in this city, objects that tell a story, street art, forgotten places, people. This is what I see in my walks. But I also like to share the beauty I see when I travel, and that makes me what? a landscape photographer? I don`t think so. I`m just a person with many interests.
Day 9 PT:
The world is full of unlabeled beauty worth photographing.
