My 5-minute daily photographic routine – A Leica T Sample Image Gallery

If you love photography, you probably have a favourite location where you like to go on a regular basis to take a picture. I am not talking about a far-off destination you might visit only once a year or less. I’m talking about a place that is close to home. You might pass by it everyday on your way to or from work or take a quick detour when you are five minutes away from your house. It is a place where you enjoy practising your daily photography.

When I was living in Turin, there were many locations I could visit time and time again as I was living downtown. One of my favourite walks was along the river Pò in the Murazzi area. Since I am now living in Wales, in a far more rural area, that favourite spot has become the beach just five minutes by foot away from home. I fell in love with the location when I used to come here during the summer, so now it somehow feels natural to go there whenever I have a moment to spare.

Now, the sea and beach are conducive to sunset shots and you might think that there is nothing original in that. But this is actually my point. I don’t go there to capture anything in particular, but I like going there because the light is always different. And despite the location being the same, it is interesting to try and capture it in a different way each time I visit. It is my 5-10 minute daily photographic routine and I think it is quite a nice one to have. (And photography aside, a walk in a nice place is always pleasant and a good way to free your mind for a brief moment from the stresses of daily life.)

Something I am always pleased to see is that many of the members of our Google + Community seem to enjoy going back to the same spot to take a new picture. It is actually thanks to them that I got the idea for this article.

I also make this daily routine my starting point when I have a new camera to review. I never start out by taking specific shots to evaluate the specs of the camera. During the first days, I simply want to enjoy shooting with it.

Right now I am having a wonderful time using the Leica T system. Below you’ll find a selection of shots taken over the past couple of days. No specs, just pure enjoyment.

Do you have a favourite location as well? I would love to hear about it in the comments section below!

    Thanks, it looks nice with mist in the valley and when it’s covered in snow it really is beautiful. No plans to move!

  • Mathieu

    Very nice view indeed!

  • Mathieu

    Hi Nick. I visited the south of Wales a couple of times ( Cardiff, Swansea, Llanelli) but I definitely need to go back and explore more countryside.

  • Nick Anderson

    Nick again, here is “my view”!!

  • Nick Anderson

    Hi, I live in Wales also, in the vale of Glamorgan. While it is not my favourite place it is my first “go to” to see what it looks like every day. I’m very fortunate to have a really good landscape view from the back of my house. Every morning (and often through the day) I check to see what sort of image is on show. I have photographed it in all weather conditions while staying warm & dry or cool and shady.

    Thanks Michael. I really like this transition so far. Landscape is one of my favourite photography and there’s llots to shoot around here.

  • Mathieu

    Thank you Al. I remember your pictures of Dungeness, it looks a nice place to get inspiration. Yes I am enjoying this new realty very much. It is quite different but I’m glad we moved.

  • Michael Pouliot

    Lovely images! How are you finding the transition from the city to the country?

  • Al Vise

    Great post and pictures! What a radical change Torino to rural Wales: are you enjoying this new reality? At any rate probably my favourite place must be Dungeness. Not exactly right behind the corner, but always an inspiring place to me at least.
