Your most photographed subject
Jan 17, 2013

I thought it might be fun to see what some of our most photographed subjects are and to see them in a variety of ways.

In a park nearby there is this really cool tree that I photograph a lot. It always looks different and interesting and serves as a great subject to test out my various cameras. Whether it is the main subject or as a backdrop it always seems to attract my attention so I end up shooting it again, and again. Below are some of my favorite shots of the tree in a variety of conditions.

Do any of you have that special 'go-to' subject that you like to photograph often?

Tim

I almost forgot to add a photo from an actual Panasonic camera, so here is another one.

Sunflowers!
In reply to Timj351, Jan 17, 2013

Nice tree, Tim!  

I'm especially fond of the first one.

Over the years I know I've photographed too many sunflowers. Of course, it's not always the same one.....

I was about to ask where your photo was. I asked to see a variety of different shots but I suspect all of yours look pretty much the same That is to say pretty much like a lot of mine.

Great Blue Heron
In reply to Timj351, Jan 17, 2013

I suppose it's the Great Blue Heron and there's usually one at this pond. They often stand statue-like for a long time so they make good practice, test subjects. Here's a GBH who did a stellar modeling job for an EZ demonstration.

Tim, I see why you like to photograph this tree. It's got character and every one look different. From different angles and in changing Seasons.  Love the last one with the Big Sky and Crescent Moon up above.

Cheers

Rick

Sunsets, sunrises and hummingbirds seem to get a lot of my lens time but I also like to get lightning pictures and airplane pictures.

No real doubt about it - here's a recent shot...

With lots more, spanning the last dozen years or so in:

Even so, until now I hadn't appreciated quite how many I've taken - perhaps time to be seeking some help?

Nice shots of Marcus, Jack. Thanks for showing them. I could have easily chosen my dog, Bear to show as well. He is a Tibetan Terrier and has more different looks than the tree.

Thanks everyone else for sharing too.

Bear is a real winner Tim. He's another one with an expressive face.
