I was thinking about this thread (and the other similar one) while out walking yesterday. Thanks to all who are sharing images and ideas.

It will be very difficult to choose this MSA, it turns out to be a successful topic.

A lot of these pictures result from the fact that we all want to take pictures and, often, there's nothing else to take pictures of -- or at least that's what happens with me.

Just a reminder that because of the late start, this one goes to the end of September!

But thee is always something total pictures of. You make it sound like these were taken out of desperation. I take my photos to show that if you look closely and carefully, there is always something interesting.

No - not desperation. But the desire to take pictures. So you find something to photograph - maybe even where you already are.
For me, the desire is to take those very pictures, not just something to photograph. They represent me seeing something in them. Most of the time I choose not to take photos of subjects that I consider hackneyed, cliché or just not appealing to me. I don't take pictures just to take pictures.

Try taking those very pictures without first finding something and having a camera. I'm not suggesting anyone is taking particular photos just to take photos - but that a lot of particular photos get taken because someone is looking to take photos.

Let's put it this way: how many photos would you take if you had no interest in taking photos?

OK. But first, let me say that for me, I carry a camera in case I see a picture I want to take. And I don't take photos if I have no interest in taking those photos. If I do not have a camera with me, or the light or situation is not what I'd like--such as too much traffic or people present or the proper camera and lens, I will usually return if possible to take the picture under the right circumstances.

I kinda subscribe to Winogrand's idea that you take a picture to see what it looks like photographed. I often don't like what something looks like photographed, though.

Yes. We make choices...that's why we (some of us) refrain, or try to refrain, from "spray and pray."

If someone has a problem with this MSA, just go ahead and win a MSA and provide a better topic for the next one.

Bertus did win the previous MSA and chose this topic - he's saying it will be hard to choose a winner because of how many photos have been entered.

But some were complaining about the topic and that is whom I address.

OK, I promise this is the last one I'm going to add to this thread. Getting a bit carried away, but it's my favorite style of photography...
