That's true a themed book or a project on a theme is a great way to break through boredom and re-fire creative juices.

Some say a fixed lens camera is limiting but I say the opposite, it can make out more creative as you really have to faff around less and THINK MORE and LOOK MORE to really find photographic oportunities.

Now these are all fixed lenses or one FL only \I'm pretty sure, most are 35mm or wider

BUT the reason I post it is I'm always spendign lots of money to travel to London as 'it's too boring where I live' to get interesting photos

But then I saw the set called @Ordinary Place' by SITTICHAI MAIKUPANDIN - scroll down

Now he lives in no special place but WOW those photos. No more do I have an excuse to say there's nothing to photograph around here.

What I DO have to admit is I need TO LEARN TO LOOK HARDER AND - MORE IMPORTANTLY - TO LOOK DIFFERENTLY

Now as a street shooter and a quite unconventional one at that - I thought I was already doing this. But no, it seems there's always more to learn

I don't know HOW he got some of his images, especially the last two, if it was something he deliberately did with his camera or a 'cool accident'... IDK.

Actually if anyone does know I'd love to hear - literally what are we looking at in those last two images? How did these photos even happen?

I need to know!
