“There are no secrets that time does not reveal.” – Jean Racine
Whenever I have the opportunity, I try to go out and take photos as often as possible. It’s not every day that I have the opportunity to photograph somewhere new and different, so when I have the ability to take photos of somewhere different, I do. Last summer, my daughter had a week of drama camp at UNC Charlotte. On the last day she had camp, I brought my bicycle with me, so I could ride around campus and take photos of the different sites. My goal was to find the botanical gardens on campus. I rode my bike all over the place, and I couldn’t find it. I tried using the built in GPS on my smart watch, and I only got more confused and lost.
When I pulled up to this fountain, I gave up on my quest to find the gardens. I decided to use my time to practice some long exposure photography. One of my goals last year was to improve my long exposure skills in town, so that when I went to take photos at new locations out of town, I would already have the practice. I have found that the best way to improve photography is by practicing photography. That’s why I try to get out as often as I can.
