A lot of the photography ‘blogosphere’ has been watching this blog post and video by Zack Arias. It’s about keeping your focus when you lose your inspiration or creative mojo. It got me thinking about why I’ve not been taking my camera out with me much recently. I used to take it everywhere I went but since doing more paid work I take it out less. So today I went for a walk to meet Hollie for lunch and took a bunch of pictures on the way back.

Most of what I got was letters on signs, and textures, both of which I’m collecting. I had a go at a texture blending shot a while back on a couple of shots (here and here) but always feel I’m cheating by using a texture downloaded from a website, so I started taking some myself.

I also took just the 50mm lens as I find that whenever I use it I’m always a lot more pleased with the framing of the shots. Not being able to zoom makes me take more care over my positioning, and today I decided to use it to focus on details. Hence the title, taking pleasure in the smallest things 🙂
