The Big Cat
London, ON, July 2009
I have a strange philosophy of photography: Absolutely every scene, even the ones that are beyond forgettable, contains at least one picture worth remembering.
So when I saw this tractor sitting in the middle of a horridly in-progress construction site, I decided the side profile - with its chunky, mud-covered tread and yellow steel hub - was kinda fun.
My wife disagreed, because getting this picture required a trek across said muddy site. She was not pleased that I returned with filthy shoes. Sometimes, photographers have to suffer for their wannabe-art. Sometimes, their wives suffer, too.
Your turn: Places other folks would write off - but you wouldn't. (I'll start: cafeterias, run-down K-Mart stores...) Please discuss.
