For instance before while driving my main focus was on taking me from A to B and not causing any accidents. Nowadays I have a wider view, of course at same time driving safe, it's not like I'm turning my head to and fro. No, it's like the sight at the corner of my eye's have improved. I can see a field far out to the corners that catches my eye's and then I turn my head and give it a glance estimating it's potential.
So what is it that catches my eye's? I guess it's what you're looking for as a photographer as leading lines, patterns or something that stands out. This simplify the scouting for great photo opportunities.
On the subject "scouting", yesterday I was on a scouting tour and went to my home where I was born and raised. This is on the countryside, knowing that our neighbors was some what eccentric I went there. Two brothers that had a little farm and they drove it like they did in the old days. Nowadays the brothers is in a retirement home and the farm hasn't been in use for many years creating a photographic wonderland. The pic's below are from yesterday. As usual you can visit my page www.larssonsphoto.com for full rez pic's
I wish you all a great weekend
