Some days, I have nothing to do. That is, nothing that I need to do. On wonderful, blessed days like this, I take out my camera and practice some skill I’ve read about or know that I need to learn. Today, because it was a beautiful, cloudy, evenly-shaded day, I decided to work on color composition in photographs. Every picture that I took had to have a specific color or color palette, something that is more difficult than I first thought it would be. However, living in a neighborhood with brightly-painted apartment blocks made my job a little easier.
Unfortunately, the cloudy skies that had originally made the day so attractive for photography eventually gave way to raindrops, and so I had to end my little adventure and head back home. Here are my results (no edits).
I threw in some pictures of pigeons at the end. They were eating bread and occasionally flying around to find more food.
All images were shot with a Nikon D3000 and 35mm lens. Aperture almost always f/5, shutter speeds vary.
