    Anyway, the above it not so true, I shot a roll of FP4+ and was pleasantly surprised by the results. This is my fave from the roll: I entitle it 'Suburbia: Land of Contrast'

    What do you think?
    Well done indeed. You just proved there are interesting things to photograph even in mundane surroundings. We all need to open our I(magination).

    Not likely. I'll take one, my wife will have to stay home and dog-sit the other three. The price she has to pay for getting rid of me for a while.

    Alex, I especially like the contrasting cars.

    Whenever I feel I've run out of subjects in my immediate (walkable) neighbourhood I find my vision is freshened if I go out with a different camera, or colour film instead of b&w, or at a different time of day.

    Spoilt for choice if I get in the car, of course. City, harbour, parks, ocean, islands, mountains, trees, lakes, rivers..... all less than an hour from home.

    John, I like the idea of an APUG house swap arrangement. Who wants to visit Vancouver Island? No pets, but you'd have to keep the bird feeders topped up.

    "The material of the artist lies not within himself nor in the fabrications of his imagination, but in the world around him. The element which gives life to the great Picassos and Cezannes, to the paintings of Van Gogh, is the relationship of the artist to context, to the truth of the real world. It is the way he sees this world and translates it into art that determines whether the work of art becomes a new and active force within reality, to widen and transform man's experience. The artist's world is limitless. It can be found anywhere far from where he lives or a few feet away. It is always on his doorstep."

    - Paul Strand, Paul Strand : The World on My Doorstep, the Years 1950 to 1976 by Paul Strand, Catherine Duncan, Ute Eskildsen (Contributor), Cesare Zavattini (Contributor) , ISBN: 0893815454
