To macjake: It's Not What But How
Gidday Craig

Thanks for your critique, I appreciate the time you put into it and the points you make.

Actually, I'm not bored with my city at all. There are always new things to photograph and even the same things change in different light. So it's not the what that I'm bored photographing, but the how. I'm bored with my technique and some of the things I'm trying aren't really appropriate for TE. But I'll sort it out, don't worry :)

Hey Lisa
oh ok, i guess i got it wrong! :)

but i still stand by my comments about Vancouver. I really am running out of subjects, or at least i think i am! For example, I know some people have been on TE full time basically everyday for 6+ years, and I think to myself....what the hell am i going to be posting from Vancouver for the next 6 years!! yikes!! I have NO freaking idea!!!!

lets see what happens.

and i get the thing about being more creative or how you shoot the city.
Perhaps getting a super wide angle like an 8-16mm like the one i have will change your angles and such...its helped me tremendously!

Manbladers and Fruitloops
Hehehehe, well that's what happens when you eat Fruitloops :) Funny, I've never been a fan of them, although will always be persuaded by a nice bowl of Cocopops :)

It's funny, but I'm finding new and unusual places to photograph in Sydney all the time. I think I was telling you about the locomotive park I found a while ago that seems to have been created with you in mind.

Yeah I thought about a super-wide angle lens. Also thought about a Lensbaby, the type which Simplyoga often uses. But I'm so cheap I found a way to replicate it in Photoshop. But yeah, maybe Santa can fork out for an 8-16mm instead.

I'm not really sure how big Vancouver is, but find it difficult to imagine that there isn't something new or unknown to photograph. I remember an old historica building you shot a while ago and I begged you to do the interior...maybe it was your library? You never did that one!

Actually, I might email you a couple of photos as I'd be interested in what you think, whether they're more Trek Lens than TE.

Thanks again, have a good one
