I have a terrible confession: I’m bored with my city.
“I feel like there’s nothing to shoot here,” I told my friend Craig today after we’d spent an hour strolling through the old milling district, cameras in hand.
I brooded a bit as I drove home. “Must find a way to live in Europe for a while,” I thought for the umpteenth time. Then another thought interrupted: “But you’re here now. Why not make the best of it?”
It did wonders for my mood to revisit some of my photos from the past couple of months.
Upon further reflection, I’ve realized that I’m bored because I’ve stopped seeing my city through curious eyes. And that’s where you can help.
Assuming that (a) you’ve ever heard of Minnesota, and (b) you would ever entertain a visit, what would you most be curious about? Send me on assignment! This bored photographer could use some inspiration.
