Photo Challenge Day 7 – Dirty Old Engine

My photo a day for 30 days challenge is almost a quarter of the way over already! It’s already been a lot of fun but I definitely find it a challenge some days. I’m used to taking pictures when I get inspired by a scene or have a theme in mind. But this is forcing me to actually think about subjects that aren’t immediately obvious.

Picking up the camera every day and telling yourself that you have to find something interesting to photograph makes you much more aware of your surroundings. It makes you observe the things you pass by without thinking about on a regular basis. It helps you reimagine objects based on their shape and color rather than just their utility.

Today’s photo is of an old Briggs and Stratton engine sitting on a lawn edger. I liked the color of it as well as the lines made by the cooling fins. Click here to see all of the posts in this challenge.
