What Is Your Favourite Photograph Subject?

Plymouth Barbican, Devon UK.
Westminster Bridge and surrounding landmarks, London.
London buildings.
Loneliness.


I love to record and document the little things and details of life, and all I just want is to freeze the moments in time.
I like to try and take unique and rare photos when I'm out and about city or nature and enjoy trying different perspective.
I also love taking shots of the scenery around me as I love Nature with all its beauty and diversity.
(Landscapes, flowers, fruits, sunsets, beaches...)
So, my favourite subjects to photograph are: Nature, buildings, and last but not least, scenes from everyday life.

What about you? xx

Nevine said...

My dearest, your photos are always so refreshing and so REAL, I feel as if I'm right there.

I document and freeze moments in time by writing them down, mostly. But when I do take photos, I like to take photos of the small things, usually... the little details that speak to me. And then I have an emotional memory attached, as well.

Hoping you enjoyed a lovely weekend, wishing you a beautiful week, and sending you warm hugs,

Nevine

Nice set and I like your question. I agree with Crissi, the photo Loneliness is intreging. Draws the eye into the bench. My favorite photos that I like to take are generally plants and animals, nature, children. It was delightful to visit your blog this morning.

This is a lovely collection of photos on a variety of subjects. Impossible to pick a favorite!! (tho that Margarita does look tasty and refreshing!)

I'm not much of a photographer and my subjects are seldom cooperative, but I do like to photograph all my pups. (and the occasional cow)

Great series of photos Betty, laughed when I saw that first shot.

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

I love all of these and I especially love how you cropped and centered that last picture.

My favorite scenes to photograph are beach scenes. I guess I can't help it, being a California girl.

Be well, Betty.

Like you - daily life. Great photos!

John McElveen said...

I too like Nature. Our Planet tells us all we need to know about what is really important. I Love the part about you liking to freeze the details of life. If God is in the details--He is also in your photos!

They are awesome. Visiting after seeing you at Cloudias!

Great Blog!

Regards,

John

Tricia said...

This is an easy question for me... I love photographing landscapes, old abandoned homes & structures, & barns! I don't photograph people very well... they might catch me & holler! *gasp =0

If I lived near the ocean, that would be a favorite, too, but... LoL!

Thanks so much for stopping by

happy week =)

Tricia said...

Dog-gone it, I'm so sorry... I was so wrapped up in the question that I forgot to comment on your photos... they're all great, but I'm partial to the 1st, 3rd, 6th, 7th, 8th and the grapes... love grapes =)))

ladyfi said...

So many wonderful shots. I like to photograph the small details too - the challenge is to take the mundane and turn it into something beautiful.

Life Ramblings said...

all beautiful shots especially those loneliness ones.

Chez Loulou said...

I like to take shots from different perspectives too and love old doors, old shutters and old gates. I'm also slightly obsessed with taking photos of Paris and the vineyards that surround our village.
I love the red Converse!

The Blonde Duck said...

Have a good weekend!

SquirrelQueen said...

I love the variety of your photos Betty but my favorites are your little details. The bench, the lemon in the tea, the jeans and sneakers....these are what life is all about.

Rick said...

I think what makes photos like these special are the memories associated with them. When I go back to look at my shots, even from a long time ago, I can almost always recall the time and place and what was going on. These are lovely (and I have coffee - Senseo - that your last photo reminds me of).

Marcia said...

Beautiful Pics Betty...You're an inspiration for me to notice and photograph the simple things.
Thanks,
Marcia :)

Kalyan said...

simply beautifully captured shots...lovely!

Emm said...

I love your photography Betty. I often look at one of your photos and marvel at the interesting angle you have taken or the way you have composed it. I like taking photos of buildings and greenery.

Pat Tillett said...

I love to take photos that chronical where I go and what I do. However, my favorite are candid street photos in black and white and nature shots.

25BAR said...

It's interesting that you've clubbed that photo of the silhouettes of people at the beach under 'Loneliness'.
I like photographing silhouettes and it's just that at that point in time the photo opportunity presents itself.
