Lunch Rush

City Center

City Center

Right now, the lunch rush is to shoot as much as possible in downtown in the time I have left. I’m gettin’ everything I can from big to small, and close to far. The downside is forgetting to eat, and then getting low blood sugar and then wandering around looking for the perfect thing that I want to eat right now that I’m fixated on and that only exists in my addled mind. And then I end up back in the cafeteria on the fifth floor of the Federal Building. At least I get some photos out of it.

    I know what you mean about becoming obsessed with this photo taking business,
    even though I haven’t been involved in any official projects of any kind, just motivated by my own personal desire to keep posting items to the Flickr site…

    For quite a while now already, it seems as though an outing of any kind, even just
    for shopping or some other errand, is a pretense for me to find more things to photograph, bring back home with me, upload to the computer, sort through & edit
    & then pass on up the pipe to Flickr…

    And one thing that bugs me a lot is when as I am watching the world go by
    ( usually from a seat on the bus ) and I suddenly notice a scene flit by that I would have liked to have captured, ( but I’ve already turned the camera off & put it away )
    Of course, in most cases, I probably wouldn’t have been able to catch it just the
    way I would have wanted to, anyway, even if I had the camera at the ready…

    I think I’ve even spent time in the limbo state inbetween trying to get to sleep & falling asleep ( & perhaps even into the state of sleep & dreams )
    taking picures ( & editing them too ) in my mind…

    Naturally ( I suppose), my rigorousness ebbs and flows. I go through periods where I have the energy to shoot every little thing I find even vaguely interesting. Other times, I just can’t muster the motivation to shoot something I know I ought to. And then I’ll feel bad about missing it afterward. Someday when I have an iPhone, it’ll make it easier to take a potshot any old time I feel like it.

    There’s no doubt that the sharing activity adds an addictive dimension to the photography activity. That’s no accident; these social network site builders know how to exploit our gaming intuitions! 🙂
