    Sometimes a scene is so mundane that you just feel compelled to shoot it... or is that just me ?!?

    I'm struggling to say something positive about it!
    It's probably the most "mundane" (your description, not mine) image ever posted on TP. :)

    Not just you. I like 'boring' pictures. (y)

    I like it - reminds me of Egglestone's work.

    I was setting up my camera the other day and a mum & (10yrs old ish) daughter were walking past. "What's he taking a picture of?" asked the girl. "Nothing" mum replied, looking back at where my camera was pointing. I then entitled it "Nothing" and it makes me smile every time I look at it. Everyone's different. Thankfully.

    It has certain 'classic' qualities that suggest it's not entirely mundane. Not one I'd have taken, but probably an area it would be worth you mining a bit more to see what you find.

    I actually rather like it. It is quite compelling and the processing is spot on.

    Here's a thought, add a few 15yr old girls pushing double buggies with nappies and litter everywhere, then change your surname to Parr and you're on a winner.

    Just add an arty title. And it will sell for a fortune.

    Fair enough, I still like it (although I'm really not sure why!)

    I think that quite often there can be something quite beautiful aout the 'boring' - it certainly worked for William Egglestone!

    Somebody else made a similar comment and I very much appreciate the comparisson. Yep if everyone liked the same thing we'd all be out shooting seaside long exposure sunsets with a lovely rock in the foreground ;)

    Oh, definitely a "theme" I will continue to play around with.

    Cheers, I had a very definite 'feel' in mind when processing it and I'm very happy with that aspect of it.

    Certainly seems to work for a fair few 'fine art' photographers

    I like it. But then I like Bill Eggleston, Martin Parr, Stephen Shore and the like, so it fits right in for me.

    ^^^ Thanks. I've got another one in a similar vein from the same venue, which I also really like for some inexplicable reason (along with one of a laundrette).

    Perhaps I could become rich and famous by creating totally boring images with boring or enigmatic titles.

    It'll probably look good hanging in the Tate.

    You'd have to start dressing excentrically and wear old style glasses to pull it off.

    I can do that - half way there already - include talking to myself and you've got it!

    Do glasses from Poundland qualify?
