A new experience for me. I do photo walks for quite a while. I started in 2012 inspired by Elise Blaha. In 2014 I attended even a Worldwide Photo Walk in Berlin, but doing a photo walk with a couple of friends was a new experience for me. Since no one of them had ever done a photo walk before, we started with a simple topic ‘rectangle’. Too simple as we learned. So we changed the topic within one street to ‘pair’. And that my friends, was a real challenge for me. It was much harder and a little bit more abstract as my usual topics.
At first, I thought, there wasn’t many pairs around or too hard to find. But then my mind and eyes adjusted to the topic and I found more and more, as always. It always takes a little time to get the mind focus on the topic, but then it clicks and the right motives pop up everywhere. The trouble with the topic ‘pair’ was, that the motives weren’t that distinct. I had to decide each time, if the objects applied in my opinion as pair or not. It wasn’t as easy as red objects or doors, but I liked the challenge and will surely do more of these in the future.
