Good question. But I have determined that I can no longer show images I care about so I am trying to find stuff that does not matter. I need a photo outlet and forum participation. I suspect others have reached the same conclusion because I see a lot of this sort of image.
Here is a little essay I wrote about it.
So are you suggesting simply because you see "a lot of this sort of image" others who post images such as this are of the same opinion - simply posting "stuff that does not matter" for entertaining one's self? I doubt that is the case.
I think you miss the point of my suggested self-assignment. Speaking for myself, I am here and participate to learn, and perhaps contribute to others doing the same. I thought you were of a like mind, perhaps not, and that is unfortunate.
I lack the interpersonal skill required for people photography so I only do family stuff which I don't show on line.
My wife says I have the manners of a goat and tact of a rhinoceros - don't fell like you are the Lone Ranger
This leaves a very large arena about which I have no connection. I don't know what I don't know..
But I have ruled out showing for presentation and that leaves me to undertake assignment work and you are the inspiration for it. But I have a different motive than you.
But I see no personal growth here for me. It will just be a way to participate in the forum.
An awful lot of photography is assignment work. I may even find non landscape subjects out there that I can connect to. I actually did the other night, an older cottage type home with a white picket fence lined with roses.
I am not so certain here as I am with landscapes so there is room to grow. But probably not with old doors unless it has the Grand Tetons behind it.
Give it a shot - don't sell yourself short
And, don't be so quick to toss aside other's posts as "stuff that does not matter" just because it does not appeal to you - you are doing both the poster and yourself an injustice.
