Out of My Comfort Zone

This is one of the tall buildings in downtown Baltimore.
If you've been reading my blog much, you can tell that the "city" shots are definitely out of my comfort zone. Being in the city itself was a bit uncomfortable. I LOVED visiting with my sister and our friends..... but I do get a bit anxious when I'm around crowds and in an unfamiliar area.
The traffic was particularly annoying!


This shot is more my style..... I love to take shots of church steeples/spires.


This is one of my all time favorites of the weekend. There is nothing really special about this bench...... i just love benches!

You have to get out of the comfort zone to become a better photographer. I certainly know what you mean though and you did a good job.

Three different images beautiful and interesting on their own way!

Very interesting shots of different heights

I have a lot of bench shots too. They all have such simple but neat lines that I have a hard time resisting, and with plenty of compactflash space on my digital camera, why not?

I love the top building shot. It makes for a nice abstract photo.

Kerri ha! you are not on your own, I hate crowds, built up areas even town centres at time.. I've had my fill of places like that.. I like their outlines from a distance, and I like the history of the poeple and places... but my comfort zone is certainly green fields and woodland paths. I'm sure you can guese that from my blog.. I like the beanch shot with the shadow... do you ever visit Miks blog who I have a link to? Anyhow he as a stunner of a bench and shadow on there from yesterday.. http://quick-snap.blogspot.com/2007/11/autumn-shadow.html
I hope you like it.

I like all of yur pictures but I can understand what you are talking about. I'm a country girl and I like to take pictures of simple things. I love church steeples also!

Being on top of that sucker, looking over the edge would definately be out of my comfort zone.

All different styles, and all great shots.

Beautiful city shots.

Although I'm only a couple of hours away from Baltimore I've never visited the Inner Harbor, too crowded for me.

I understand all too well what you mean by "comfort zone" and I am the same way under the same type of circumstances, but that being said you took a lot of fine photographs which shows you can do well under pressure!

I like the building shots.

Said the Country Mouse to the City Mouse... "It's all well and good to be here in the city, surrounded by so much goings on, but I will be happy to get home to my pasture and my barn".
Neat pics Kerri.
Thanks.

I understand what you mean in saying you are uncomfortable there. Whenever I return to the city, I feel out of place, too. Beautiful shots, Kerri!

And yes, the traffic can make you nervous when you aren't used to it. Especially the interstates between Baltimore and Washington, D.C. I'll never get used to them.

For being out of your comfort zone, you did beautifully. Big cities are great to visit, but I could never live in one.
