    1. This is quite funny, it’s actually one of my least favourite photos — maybe because it’s a common view for me that I see often ๐Ÿ™‚

        Haha that’s excellent! I love different takes on the same object or image. ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. Maybe I could try taking photos of the same spot over a period of time to see how it changes during the seasons. This is actually a great idea that you gave me, though I doubt that I’m consistent enough to pull it off…

            Oooohhh that is definitely worth a try! I too think that my inconsistent personality trait would put that to rest fairly quickly though lol

          2. I was actually trying to document a patch of moss in the course of time for some two months or so, and I got images of it when it was covered in snow, soaked in rain and dry. Then I completely forgot about it. How disappointing. Here are however the pictures: https://maraeastern.com/2014/01/22/zero-to-hero-21/.

          3. Taking pictures of the same spot over the seasons is a great idea. I have been trying that with the path I walk in the park. I just keep falling out of my walking schedule. I need to get back on track and I think using the picture idea will help me with that.

          4. A path in a park is the perfect subject to document! I’d love to see the results, if you choose to go for this project ๐Ÿ™‚

          5. I think I am going to try again once September gets here. The weather is so much better for walking. It has been really humid and hot and I hate walking in that mess.

          6. Please do! I’m myself quite excited about the idea again, maybe we could both give it a try ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think I’d probably document the field behind our garden, it could be interesting to see the different phases of farming, from planting the crops to harvesting it.

          7. I think documenting the changing field through the seasons is a great idea.

    1. It looks lovely for sure — I only saw some parts of the garden from above, but those parts where I could and did go were pleasant enough ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. The picture was shot from the window of a building standing on a rock, so I wasn’t as high as it looks ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. I think I’m unfavourably biased against this view because it’s a view from the building where I work ๐Ÿ˜ฎ And I normally don’t associate work with nice views…
