This thread made me remember when I came back to analog photography and for the first time just went out into the woods, set up a tripod and took a picture of a tree. Before that, I only had respect for street photography. Everything else was boring, even a bit ridiculous. Even something I didn't want anyone to catch me doing. But setting up that tripod was so fulfilling, that day I decided not to care what anyone else thought about my pictures. Now I can walk down the path of trying out whatever process I want, buy whatever new gear I can afford and take the most boring photos, just because it is fun.
