No Interest in Beauty Anymore

I have lost all interest in taking beautiful landscape pictures like those which are all over the web now-a-days.  I have no desire to take the kinds of images which are most viewed and look like all the others that are taken by every tourist, often with smart phones.  To get those kinds of images it primarily requires being at the right spot at the right time of day in the right weather.  To be fair, one of my reasons for loss of interest is that I am not traveling to those kinds of places, and thus I have had to find different types of images to make.  If it isn’t possible for me to take the pictures, I’m not interested.

My changes have allowed me to use different, smaller cameras with shorter focal lengths and caused me to figure out what to do with scenes like above on the streets of Hanover, PA.  In my review of past experiences I have noted that the Fujifilm X-100 images that I took convert nicely to B&W.  It only had an APS-C size 12.3 megapixel CMOS sensor … not the new X-Trans sensor.

    It may not look beautiful like nature pics, but I like the composition of this pic. The angles on the building in the back make it interesting as well.
