What is your favorite subject to photograph?

I'm feeling like my little photography blog is feeling too one-side (with just me talking.) I'd like to make this blog more interactive. I'd like to hear from you.

In the spirit of interactivity, I'd like to hear what everyone's favorite subjects to photograph are, please include samples (embedded or linked.)

I'll start. My favorite subjects to photograph are:
  • My kids
  • My friends windsurfing
  • Landscape
Here are examples of each:

My friend Mitch catching some nice air on a windy day.
Location: 'The Hatch", Hood River, Oregon.

Canon 10D, Sigma 70-200 f2.8, Focal length: 200mm, Shutter-speed: 1/640 of a second, Aperture: f4, ISO 100.

A cluster of Balsam Root.

Location: Vista Ridge on Mt. Hood, Oregon.

I've got a similar taste to you although people seem to dive out of the way whenever I point a camera at them so I seem to take more photos of landscapes. I've only recently caught the photography bug and just got my first Canon DSLR last week. I'll be watching your blog! :)

P.S. How do you embed images in comments?

I like candid and people shots like here, here, here, here, here, and here

Of course, the occasional posed or situational shot is nice too here, here and here.

And yes, I love black and white. I shoot in color, but convert later.

Gary, you can just use an HTML "a href" tag to link to your picture.

Hi, I'm a friend of Betsy's through Dave. He turned me on to your blog. I love checking in. I'd say my favorite subjects are: kids/candids & landscape. Still learning...
