They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well this photo is worth that and more. Last night I went out solely to walk around the city, take some photos and explore some new areas. I was inspired to just get out and do something, no matter what; so I did.
I was heading home after a nice long walk, it was getting dark, but I saw the steam pouring out of the sewer and though this would be a pretty cool shot at night. So I headed over, started snapping some shots, set up my tripod for some long exposure shots when a group of bikers our of their own curiosity came over to see what I was doing. I explained to them the process, showed them some photos and then next thing you know I am directing a mini shoot in the streets of Boston. Did I have proper lighting? No. Did I have the right lens? Probably not. Did I care? No. I had a blast and ended up getting some pretty rad shots.
The point is, you have to get out there; period. Whether it is for photography, meeting new people, or finding new things to do. There is so much out there, so many opportunities, but the only way to experience them is to get off your ass and make it happen. What are you waiting for?
