I know Shrew will be charging in on her White Horse to save the day with some gorgeous, quality photos again any minute, but while we wait, I thought I’d drop another quick post. It’s COLD here…22 degrees this morning. Yesterday was frigid, and I had to opt out of my light jacket and into my bulky warm one for the first time. We have brown everywhere, and snow flurries popping up throughout our days. Winter is quickly settling in and yesterday in an e-mail, the question arose, “What do you photograph when lacking inspiration in this month of dullness?” (I’m paraphrasing…) Color is gone, snow isn’t here yet, decorations aren’t yet hung…it’s a pretty lackluster month in many ways. Some fabulous responses came through those e-mails, and I thought it would be worth developing a list of November photographic inspirations right here at Shrew’s place. So, here are the wonderful ideas already presented, and please, please, please add yours in the comments.
November Inspirations while we wait for Christmas/Winter beauty to arrive:

- kid fingers and toes
- try taking photos of a car driving by but move the camera so the car is still and the background blurred
- the moon (see Ivory’s post on Pdub)
- in the morning go outside and look for things with frost on them
- still life of some fruit on the table
- try some black and white portraits of the kids — just their faces — play with the depth of field
- Nubby fabric
- dog & cat parts
- liquids in glasses
- hardware around the house
- silhouettes of leafless trees against stark, ominous clouds right before a storm.
- sunrise and sunset
