Do you like "local color" along with photos of watches?

  • No! If I want to look at pictures of cities or countryside, I'll go to a forum for those things!

I took a few pictures of my GL-240 this morning sitting outdoors on a bench a few blocks from my apartment. I posted those photos along with a few pics of the city taken at the same time.

I enjoy it when someone posts pics of their neighborhood, their backyard, their family's castle, the restaurant down the street, the dog, etc., along with great pictures of their G's. My question is how do the rest of you feel? Do you enjoy these little windows into the world of forum members? Or do you find they just get in the way?

Hi Kronos,

I very much like to see the watch in it's environment. It is something I particularly like in your photo's and the reason I try to post pics of what I am doing in the "What are you wearing" thread. I enjoyed your GL-240 pics. Were you walking your dog?

Cheers,

Sjors

Yes, I was! I walk my older daughter (who is now 8) to her school bus stop every morning and wait there with her until the bus comes. Many of those days, Winnie, our Maltese comes along for the walk.

Well, I'll see what I can do! At the very least, I'll try to take a pic or two of the Raysman in the old ballpark. I'm probably not nearly a good enough photographer to get both the Raysman and the stadium in focus at the same time, but I'll see what I can do.

I love the idea! Nice to see a bit of the local backdrop in the shot! Girls in the shot would be a nice bonus too....:-!

Ok, i'll try to get more pics with local background instead of just using my black camerabag. :)
Mate,I happen to like that camera bag...;-) Well, I guess I'd better stop relying on my house's front door for a lot of my wrist shot backgrounds...:-d

I enjoy the pics. Sometimes I try to get them, mostly I just focus on the watch. We shall see...

The watch will always be the main focus, but it's nice to have a little distraction in the background sometimes. I for one like to pay attention to all the details...:)

Hi Kronos - I like the idea of "local Colour" in the G-Shock pictures here. I am curious enough to want to know where the pics were taken and such...
Keep it up!

i like the holiday/local photo shots, because it makes it much more interesting and is an insight to people's lives/cultures/surroundings :-!

Yep, pictures with a touch of the poster's side of the world adds more

colour and sincerity to me.:-! And absolutely fun too, when I get a

glimpse on what their everyday life,culture,etc... may be on their end.:)|>
