Out Noticing

Circles

After getting together in Broad Ripple with some friends on Saturday morning I went out for a walk. I spent some time thinking about a term I’ve heard recently, that photographers are “professional noticers”. I love it.

It really describes these walks for me. No point, no big projects, just in the moment, noticing. I think some day I will take on a project, find a story that I can’t tell in just one image. For now though noticing is at the heart of my photography. I notice, then try to capture what it was that drew me.
