Nice shot! Lots of mood in that one!

A joke? This is Germany, please be serious I don't know what it was, but I am sure it was in earnest.

You are right of course. When around and walking in Berlin this summer I spent a lot of time waiting for pedestrian (pun) traffic signals to turn green despite of not seeing a car or other vehicle. We don't do that in Sweden but when practicing walking by will I sometimes felt very lonely. I have to say though that the East Berlin style "Don't Walk" symbol is cute. But a joke it is not.

I walk when there are no cars close. It is sufficient for me that I can walk slowly across the street without forcing anyone to brake or slow down. Sometimes it feels lonely, yes

Wait til you walk with your kid(s). You'll appreciate "rules" for a couple of years

I should add that I don't do this when I am walking with my daughter, nor do I normally do it when other kids are waiting at the light. However, when there are only law-abiding adults waiting, I enjoy seeing them fume when I commit my crime.

Thanks very much Ronny, I love your newest flower shots too!

I have been taking a much-needed break from photography, and especially from excessive forum posting, to do some other things in my life which I have been neglecting, such as programming on my own time. For example, I am refreshing my scheme and lisp skills (I programmed MCL professionally while studying), with the ultimate goal of getting good at Haskell, but the time I can dedicate to this is strictly limited, so it is a longer-term project. I am also programming a little sudoku game, using some ideas which make the interface much nicer and more helpful to use than any such programs I have used so far. All of this and more to refresh my investment in my career, and open up some new directions for the future.

I am also a little burned out on walk-about type of photography, and most of my projects are similarly on hold. I feel a strong urge to do some conceptual-type photography (have you people seen Benedict Morgan's latest work? amazing), but to get a nice idea, fully formed, takes significant effort, and more importantly, open space in your mind, so this one is not yet ready.

My basic perception of the state of photography today is that all photography is not original, with the single exception of conceptual photography, which is as fresh and different as your idea. All of my urbex and cemetery photography, your flower shots, travel photography, portraits, all of that is just building on and in a very few cases, extending, what other people have done already. It is fun and relaxing, but somehow I find that it no longer satisfies my soul.

I am artistically hungry, but the Soylent of repetition doesn't satisfy me.

Hi Carsten,

I am sort of at the opposite I guess. I do not consider any of my photos to be great, but I do not care. There are something that keeps me get interested. Even when they are cliche landscape shot, if I find something that is interesting to me, whether that works with the cliche land or not, it satisfies me. Or, it could be a shot of a fire hydrant. However, I have not been 'wowed' by my own photos, so that is a bit of a problem I hope, soon, I can distill the essence of what 'interested' me, that is my hope.

The photographer you mentioned, Benedict Morgan, I only found a wedding photographer from Merbourne Austraila. Nothing 'conceptual' about his work, so that must not be the one you had in mind.

Being 'new', is not that interesting. Being interesting, is.

Ah, interesting. I am surprised that he isn't found in a search, since he uses his own name for the website, but I guess he needs to do some SEO Found on the Petapixel site.

Well, I guess I somehow think similarly, except that in trying to rediscover the wow that I used to have, I have gone through the previously mentioned thoughts.

I am not trying to be famous, but the more time goes on (I am 47, and have owned an SLR or similar since I was 12), the less satisfied I am when I take a good photo which is very similar to previous work by someone else.
