For Day 4 of my Project 365 I thought I would take a really cheesy photograph:
One of the things that I’m going to have to get over if I have any hope of finishing this Project 365 is the feeling of being looked at strange when I take out my camera and start shooting images of things that the typical non-photographer would consider “weird”. Taking photographs of stuff in a grocery store might be one of those places.
I was out at lunch running some errands and found myself at the local Publix Supermarket. I had my Canon PowerShot S95 with me and was looking for something fairly quick to shoot. I came along the cheese aisle and I figured it would be as good a place as any to try. I took the camera out of my pocket, wandered up to the cheese and did my best to compose a shot that would make use of the shelves. People were kind of staring at me but I soldiered on, taking a few seconds to line up things and adjust the ISO and focal length before clicking the shutter button.
When I got done I turned around to pick up my basket and continue shopping I noticed 3 people patiently waiting behind me, not wanting to disturb me (or maybe they were just freaked out a little ).
