Nothing to shoot here...

I can't tell you how many times photographers have said to me " there's nothing to shoot here!"
There's ALWAYS something to shoot.....if you keep your eyes open and pay attention to the world around you. Even on the quietest streets and alleyways, there's small details, textures and contrasts that can be explored and celebrated.

I was up early on the island of Santorini in Greece with no-one around, and came across this blue door, broom and colorful curtain that balanced in a perfect composition. The "hand made" quality of the design elements helped tell the story about the beauty of the Greek Islands, and the embrace of individual craft in the construction and decoration of homes there.

The lesson here is to always keep your eyes open for beauty all around you....there's great subject matter everywhere!
