This trend was started by Poddys, with his lens A Walk Around Deer Creek. This lens is a pictorial view of Poddys’ walk with loads of pictures, that introduces us to his local area. It is actually a simply put together lens, primarily of pictures with descriptions of each one.
Another lens that is written on a similar topic is Walk On Our Country Road by lensmaster Clouda9. This is a shorter lens in length, but has beautiful pictures of the flowers and other nature scenes that Clouda sees daily. Although the concept is similar, the Walk On Our Country Road lens is actually put together in a more complicated fashion. Clouda has grouped the pictures together for a different effect that Poddys has.
AJ mentions that both of these lenses have spurred some lens ideas for her, and well they should because they are both excellent examples of how the right pictures can really add to a lens. How much of what we see every day can become a fascinating lens for other people to read especially if they are going to visit your area of the world. I urge you to visit the lenses to see if you come up with any great ideas of your own.
As AJ says, “In fact I was so inspired that when my Lovely Hubby announced he was taking some personal time to go on a bike-ride last weekend and no the girls could not go with him because he was going to do 30 miles (keeps him trim, lucky me!) and he asked “Where’s the camera?”, I had one of those “Ah ha! I sense a lens here” moments.”
