Posted 02 May 2006 - 10:20 PM

I'd like to start this topic for the members of Unexplained Mysteries who have a love of taking pictures and capturing stories in images. I've recently found myself splurging on a relatively decent camera to fuel my desire to take pictures of the beauty that surrounds me in everyday life, and would like to share it with you and experience some of your own.

Photography I find is a peaceful hobby that allows people to share their surroundings and experiences while expressing oneself through the art of imagery. Now i certainly don't claim to be an expert in any way at all, i simply like to take pictures of things. Sometimes those pictures can only fully be enjoyed by the one who took it, and sometimes that can be a source of inspiration for others, or simple enjoyment to view the moments that others have captured.

So please, share some of your Photography, discuss your work and enjoy the work of others. I shall be uploading some of my own pictures very shortly.

I've been interested in photography for as long as I can remember, but didn't start until September of last year in hopes of getting the attention of a certain female photographer. I didn't succeed, but at least I found a new hobby.

Here are ten of my favorite pieces of work:

Gorgeous! And they call you colorless, that couldn't be further from the truth. original.gif You have a very impressive eye for art there, and it's really inspiring. Thank you, very much for sharing your work. I really enjoy the city-scapes and attention to the placement of the objects in your pictures.

I think smoke is sometimes beautiful in photos, especially if colored by sunlight. Especially if its the pinkish one of sunset.

Hats!

Quite right. I imagine it would be rather difficult to capture a good shot of it but it can look quite magical. I'll give it a shot.

I love your attention to details, very nice! Thank you for sharing. The first with the blossum is an absolute delight.

I really, really love the first one. It had a mood to it, a silent solemn mood that really draws me in and makes me want to know more. Good work!

Okay. Bear in mind this is something i've just started, i'm sure with time my images will be a lot better.

I have a fascination with sunsets, a rather awful one. laugh.gif Promise the next batch wont be full of them.
