    This reminds me of the Ugly Duckling [fairy tale] who transforms into one graceful swan. 🙂

        Now that’s an interesting question and probably worth a whole post to explain properly. A lot of my photography is travel orientated (whether abroad or here in the UK) and what I try to do is take shots not only of the obvious tourist attractions, but also images that capture the essence/atmosphere of the place I’m visiting. So I’m always on the look-out for opportunities to capture local people going about their everyday lives or quirky/unique details that really provide the local flavour. Good composition is important to me and lovely light as well (although the latter isn’t always possible and sometimes you just have to do the best with what you’ve got on the day). Researching the place before hand is useful, just to get an idea of the sort of photo opportunities available, but you have to be prepared to be flexible and adapt to the situation on the ground – after all photography is an art form and any images you take should convey how you felt in your surroundings at the moment you pressed the shutter-button……and obviously your own mood/emotional state at the time will have a huge impact on the subjects you choose and the way you choose to capture them.

        Wow, that’s overwhelming. I’ll keep that in my mind next time I capture a picture!
