Why are you photographing that?

It’s a bike on the ground, why are you photographing it? That’s what a group of girls asked me as I crouched down next to this bike. I got the shot though!

    So, what was your answer?

    “It’s Arty, you wouldn’t understand.”

    “I’m a bicycle wheel inspector and I am recording that this wheel isn’t perfectly round.”

    “Bicycle wheels turn me on.”

    Yeah, I get that a bit as well – I’m sure we all do. Some people just don’t see the art/beauty in the everyday things.

    "Why are you photographing that?" – I get that a bit from friends, showing them the results on the LCD mostly gets a positive response.

    How do you find the Sigma 10-20? I’m debating whether to get that or the Canon 10-22.
