Non-photography day

Today was Non Photography Day! The aim of the day is to enjoy the moment instead of trying to record it for posterity. Luckily I wasn’t doing anything wildly interesting visually today!

Paul Butzi writes that he is half-sympathetic to the cause being championed by Becca Bland. I have to admit she has a point too, but it’s a hobby, and a safe, enjoyable one at that. If I had something interesting to photograph I would have!

Maybe we should call “enjoying the moment” by another name? Call it “taking a non-photograph” instead. Enjoy the sun, and the peace and quiet or watch the world go by as you sit down with your lunch.
Did you take a non-photograph today?

    Outstanding concept. I’m going to add that to my week. Right now I have wide angle day, telephoto day, candid day, landscape day, architecture day, etc…

    I mowed the lawn and then stared at the flowers and the robins I’d upset with the noise, rather than rushing in to get the camera. Does that count?

    Mow the lawn.. I need to do the same! You did more than I did outside yesterday. We’re going through a heatwave here with temperatures hitting 30 degrees so I’m avoiding the sun as much as I can!
