I've been trying to shoot things other than street for a while with my cheap Olympus rig for weeks, failing miserably. A quick long-weekend day trip to the nearby Niagara Falls could make the difference. How can you take a bad picture of the world-famous attraction? Bad, maybe not. An interesting picture? That's much harder.
It's really challenging to take a shot of something that's been shot to death, and that's really, after all, just a really large amount of water, falling.
Even when shooting landscapes, I can't seem to shake off my street photography instincts, and I need to bring that sense of timing into the frame. Fortunately, a blistering sunny day and the passing Maid of the Mist seemed to align perfectly, just when I had my Olympus in hand.
