Most people stop noticing the locations they pass by every day. But photographers tend to see these places in a different way. Dutch photographer Albert Dros has captured the exact same spot several times during one year, at different times of the day. His photos are a perfect demonstration how the exact same place can differ during over the course of a year. but more importantly, they show us we can find beauty anywhere and anytime.
As Albert writes on his blog, sometimes our own neighborhood isn’t so motivating to when it comes to photography. You see the same things every day, and you get used to them. However, he explains that photography helped him to see the world (and his neighborhood) in a different way. He realized that there are some places he revisited several times to see how they looked during different seasons and different times of the day. And every time, he found beauty in them.
Albert shares an example of a tree lane, about 5 minutes’ drive from his house. He took 7 shots throughout the year, each taken in a different season and/or different time of the day. As Albert explains, even during the same season with only a few days difference, the exact same place can look totally different in a photo. The best example are the photos taken in autumn. Take a look:
I not only like Albert’s photos, but the whole idea is pretty interesting. This is a great reminder that beauty can be found everywhere and rediscovered even at familiar places.
