A challenge – Do an Interview

Try this one.  Ask a friend for an interview with pictures.  Have fun at it, and get the pictures.  It might be good practice for later in life, but right now, it will make a treasure of memories.

Try to pick a subject that is a favorite of his or her, and expand on it.  You could make this into a blog or even an article for publication if you handle it and have the proper pictures to back your content.

Does one of your friends like animals?  Get them to talk about it and what they like about their involvement in the animal family.  Find out why they want to get involved.  Let me explain it like this.

Blog #16 DLook closely at the picture and see all of it.  Notice that the little goat is about half asleep and seems to be very content.  Maybe it has a full tummy and is nice and warm.  This little baby outdoor animal is resting on carpet – different??  How about the apparent sofa he (or she) is against?  Now are you beginning to get an unusual mental picture with questions?

An interview with the owner would tell you a lot.  I know that this baby was rejected by its mom, and it’s wintertime with frost on the ground.  She brought the baby in, feeds it with a bottle and it’s kept in its own box by a heater.  She is saving the life of a young goat – that’s the story behind the picture.  Think of what your interview could give you.

Let’s try another one.

Seattle Trip - July 117What’s the story about seeing the butt end of a lot of boats?   Doesn’t say much, does it?  If you could interview someone that knew about it, it could be very interesting, especially if your interests are special vacations.

I know that this was taken on lake Coeur D’ Alene, Idaho.  It’s one of the most beautiful lakes I have ever been on.  True, it isn’t as popular as Lake Tahoe on the California/Nevada border, but it is none the less a fabulous lake to visit and vacation on.  This particular boat basin is on the north end of the lake and has almost all a person could want.  The stroll down town is very pleasant with some places serving sidewalk lunch opportunities with scenes like this one below.  They have these “flower balls” hung on many of the light poles down the streets.

Seattle Trip - July 130Interviewing and using your camera can give some very interesting facts with gorgeous pictures of many subjects.  Do be a little careful with taking pictures of people and the intent of selling them.  If you don’t have the proper signed permission paperwork you could find yourself on the freeway to a big law suit.

Relax and enjoy whatever you do.  Make it interesting and entertaining, and while doing all that, make better memories with your pictures.  Don’t forget to add the word picture to explain what it is that you’re looking at when.  You also need the information of the person you interviewed but be sure and get permission before you print any personal information – get permission.  Just imagine what you can create ————
