Great macjake 2012-11-03 7:31

Hi Lisa
hmmm...I'm sitting here right now, just woke up, and I have a strange strange craving for toast! I wonder why that would be? lol
Well, I just ate my bowl of cereal - Froot Loops! lol
yes, I eat Fruit Loops every morning. I know what you're thinking....all he needs now are his man bladers! :)

lets get back to the photo at hand shall we?!

I remember reading the notes you mentioned to Rosemary ( i think it was her ) that you're getting a bit stale and bored with posting photos from your home and native land. You are not alone my friend. Before visiting europe a few months ago, I was certainly in the same boat. Its hard to keep posting photos of Vancouver, when I feel like I've shared most photogenic areas of the city already.

But...if you think long and hard like you did HERE - its a great shot because for us foreigners we have NO idea about this toaster. And for us the viewer, its a great story!! Its cool to know about such eye sores and how it blocks the fantastic view of the OH. And the photo aint that bad either, especially with the water reflections and all.

I find that a so so photo can be made excellent with an informative note. And a great photo can be made boring with a dead note, leaving you with alot of questions and being frustrated.

Your story brings the quality and integrity of the shot way up. Thats what makes TE a bit different from other sites, the ability to write an informative note and keeping us the viewer engaged.

so keep it going! search your city streets, you never know what you may find!!

enjoy your weekend

Smile 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
