I spend some time almost daily browsing through images on photo sites, such as 500px and Flickr. One thought that’s been occurring to me very often lately is that unless you’re taking pictures of specific people or situations, every picture has already been taken. The seaside sunset – there must be about as many of those as there are stars in the sky. Realize how difficult it is to create something really unique these days when everyone’s a photographer and all photographers are globally connected.
And hey – my own favourite subject, the domestic cat, is among the four subjects that all stock photo sites say they need no more of. My cat’s name is Nikon and he poses for my camera almost daily.
