I don’t know what to photograph for my blog, or even to continue the blog. Most photographers travel to various places to photograph them. I have not been traveling far or often, so most of my photography has been of things I see as I walk around my home. I have done it all, over and over, and need something else.
I have made many photographs on the streets of Hanover, but it is a small place and I have photographed the streets and alleys around the center of the Borough many times. I wanted to make a book of Hanover photos, but I haven’t been able to think of a good theme, and I see little reason to go back to make pictures until I think of a theme; i.e., a message I want to tell.
Most of my photography for my blog has been my playing with different gear and processing. That has slowed to a mere trickle. I need another reason to search for, and make, pictures.
One morning Marcia and I went to Miller’s Market and since I hadn’t used the Olympus PEN-F with the Panasonic 20mm lens at f/1.7 for a while, I took it and made these images to see how one of my styles worked. That’s it. I had no prior intentions, no story or message other than to test the style.
PS, it is a nice clean market on the road between Hanover and Abbottstown on Rt. 194 that has basic recipe ingredients; i.e., those things you don’t find much of in chain grocery stores anymore.
