I'm on an upswing lately - I've found my photographic muse in my Rolleiflex, and I've been showing it a lot of love lately. Despite the sauna-like conditions here in DC in the summer, I've been making myself get out and take pictures. It's good training if nothing else, as it helps me learn to see what's already around me. While I love to travel, and I always bring a camera with me when I do (what's the point of a vacation without vacation photos??), I've discovered the joy of photographing that which I already know, because it's stuff I understand at a casual glance.
