peccadillo \peck-uh-DIL-oh\,

A slight offense; a petty fault.

I got a bit of a new perspective for today's word of the day. I always say (or at least, I should always say) the dumber you look taking the photo, the more likely it is to come out well. In my opinion, that goes for most out-of-studio photos. Look for a different angle: get low or get up on top of something, and you're bound to find a perspective more interesting to viewers than what they can already see at eye level.

Well that's the lesson for today, anyway. I stumbled across these windows (with bricks behind them, for some reason) on Salisbury Street in Raleigh. I actually could have sworn I'd seen them somewhere else, like on cell phone camera aficionado Shawn Rocco's blog (which is awesome if you get a chance to look through it), but I couldn't find it anywhere. That said, if you happen to come across them, let me know.

It was an awesome day out, which is why I decided to hop on my bike in the first place, so it's nice to have gotten the blue sky in the photo. What you're looking at is just what I saw laying on the ground in a small parking lot.

As always, if you've got a photo for peccadillo, then send it to me in an email!

  1. When's the Photo Declamo coffee table book coming out? This one and yesterday's are definite entrees.
