Here is a fun exercise to help develop your photographic eye. As you are walking down the street or at the park, stop and look for one interesting thing to photograph within 10 feet of where you stand. Look up, look down, look for lines, shapes, details, shadows, etc. I bet you’ll be surprised by how many interesting things you’ll discover. I was walking down Rice Park in St Paul yesterday. It’s the time of year when everything looks ugly with gray melting snow everywhere you look. A park bench without anyone sitting on it can look pretty boring, unless you look for beauty in the ordinary.
