Montreal mural festival. For now, he was content to take pictures, not to mention, being attentive to motorists. After being hit by a car last week, Lohbado no longer trusted motorists. A moment of distraction, or for whatever cause, a motorist could kill or seriously maim someone on a bike. Anyway, it was nice to be out riding and to discover so many interesting sights and sounds.

Boring pictures require some skill. There are various levels of boring pictures. There’s the sloppy composition, unfocused, overexposed highlights, underexposed shadows. On a higher level, boring pictures take on a certain style. Boring picture style could involve taking well thought out compositions, in focus with adequate exposure. There’s something restful about plain shapes, clear competent images without drama. Photography as discipline involves taking many photos that one knows won’t be masterpieces. Abandon ideas of fruition or applause. Take pictures and don’t think too much, other than about what relates to the task. Critical chatter could be a hindrance. It’s useless to ask: is this going to be a good photo or a boring photo? Is this fascinating or dull? The Lohbado approach is about process. The process of taking photos increases one’s visual awareness and enjoyment.

Absolute origin is an impossibility, although one could speak of relative beginning, as in beginning of the video or beginning of a new year. The impossibility of origin implies existence of the infinite, as in infinite regress.
The nature shots are from Kangirsuk, Nunavik from a few years ago. I didn't get the name of the French folk singer. It's a recording from a house party in Kangirsuk, about 2006.
