I find it very useful to have a few projects to work on, some are long term others more focused.
I bought another photography book recently showing iconic photographs through the years. One of the shots that caught my eye was by Elliott Erwitt. He was a great street photographer and one of his long term projects was photographing dogs.
So I thought to myself, on my next trip out I would have a go.
We headed off to Scarborough for a day out and I packed my Leica M8 with 35mm Summicron and 50mm Summilux lens.
Heading out with a definitely goal really focused the mind and I was very pleased with the beach shot which works well when printed big.
