Doggedly Capturing Developing Your Eye Themes To Ring in the New Year

Happy New Year!  It is the beginning of 2018, of course.

 

To better myself a tad, I am doing a free ten-day photography course from WordPress, and while I am a week late, the timing isn’t too bad because I am literally ringing in the New Year with exercises in photography that I wouldn’t otherwise have thought to do.

 

Today’s exercise is to take a photo of something big.

 

To illustrate the theme, I thought of some symbolism.  You see, I went to the park, where there is a library, aquatic center, and playground.  You can see a Canadian flag flying as well.  The nation of Canada is, of course, massive, and that is one component of the symbolism of the photo.

A “big” park on New Year’s Day
  • The aquatic center is comprised of what is probably an Olympic-sized swimming pool, which is a big space for water.

 

  • To a child, the playground in the park is “big,” for the reason that a child is small.  It cannot be reasoned the same with adult eyes, but I feel it helps symbolize bigness all the same.

 

  • Last but not least, the volumes of knowledge inside the library represent a massive amount of information, which I feel represents the idea of big.  In fact, as today is New Year’s Day, and folks are beginning the start of a resolution (or more), one suggestion you may wish to try is to resolve to read more in 2018.  If you aren’t a regular reader all ready, I would ask if you feel you waste time on social media.

 

This is not to say that social media isn’t a lot of fun; it is.

 

It is just that if you find you are wasting time with social media, you may wish to resolve for 2018 to trade the time spent on social media for time spent reading.  Whether to try something like that is up to you.

 

Once again, happy new year.  I am glad I am able to share it.  Have a bountiful 2018!
