Downtown Photo Exploration

A few nights ago I met up with a good friend and fellow photographer to do a bit of urban exploration in our small downtown environment.  We are limited to just a few blocks of buildings and alleys.  I considered the night to be a successful outing.  I think we will only get better with time as we learn to recognize opportunities.   This was more of a test run than anything else.  In the past couple of weeks I have ventured out with my wife a time of two to shoot predetermined areas.  This was the first time to meet up with a fellow photographer to just wander around and see what we could find.  I came away with some decent shots and some that are less than impressive.  But, all in all, it was a good learning experience.  I look forward to more outings, more exploration, and hopefully more “post worthy” photos.
