Friday My Town Shoot-Out was something I used to do regularly. FMTSO is a small group of folks who post a few theme-based pics every Friday, focused on the area in which they live. Some members are actual professional photographers, while others of us use point and shoots or phone cameras. It's about sharing where you live, at the same time learning to use whatever camera you may have.
|In front of my house: traffic! Wild turkeys cause mini traffic jams all the time. YOU may be in a hurry, but they never are.|
The other day I received an email from Ginger, an old shoot-out buddy who has since moved back to the US from Brazil. Ginger's personal invitation to come back was irresistible. Why not? Today's theme is "rush hour."
I live in an Oregon town too small to have a rush hour. If I have to wait at a light for longer than 2 minutes it's unusual. But in the spirit of the idea, I thought I'd hop in the car and search for a rush of some sort.
So to get my fix I will hop over to the Friday shoot-out website and check out who is posting. There may be something from Houston, or Sweden, New Zealand, or Singapore. In fact you guys, why not post something there yourselves? Let me see where you live, coffee cup in hand, without having to move from my chair.
