>>3463967> I strongly believe that sometimes you just need to create while ideas are forming, if you spend a ton of time planning what the message will be it's possible that you'll never get to the creation stage.
I certainly agree>I can't believe the pace at which my local landscape is changing. It's one of the fastest growing regions in the country, which makes this type of photography far different than doing something similar in the American rust belt where things are stagnant and sad.
where are these photos taken at?>I really never know when a building that has stood for a century will be torn down - it happens all the time. Change is part of the human progress, but it will be interesting to compare these images to what it will look like in 20 years. Local character will vanish as modern strip malls and cloned houses that look just like the rest of America pop up.
Its an interesting angle. To me, a lot of these structures DO look like the whole of rural America, so much so that the place it hard to pin down. I understand the nostalgia, but it seem curious to me to romanticize heavy machinery, something traditionally thought of as ugly. With the photograph of the farmhouse >>3463846
I can see the angle of "old ways left behind". Could be interesting to document these spaces over time and the urban sprawl slowly taking over. Anyways, like you said, it doesn't matter too much at this stage what the "concept" is, but it's just something to keep in mind, I guess. Picturesque photographers often stop at "It's beautiful, so its good", often leaving things wanting.
