While waiting for my daughter yesterday I was limited in how far I could go away from a designated place.
I often hear of people getting into the photography equivalent of writer’s-block, especially anyone involved in any kind of ‘photo-a-day’ project. One suggestion I recently heard was to impose constraints on yourself and then try to be creative within your constraints. I know it sounds counter-intuitive but it is a technique constantly being explored and used by artists in all creative endeavors.
In my case I needed to to create an image within 50m of my car. While looking around I noticed a collection of drains feeding a storm-water course and wondered what one of these drains looked like.
This is what I found.
