    Local Color with Your Watch Photos?

    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

    (And I expect a photo of Mariano Rivera wearing your yellow Raysman tomorrow.)

    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 like it. You often learn as much about the person as the watch. And anyway, if you just want pictures of a watch, you can find them with Google.

    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....

    I enjoy it. A bit of a change from pics that can general be found all over the net.

    I try to add local stuff to some of my photos. I think it adds a nice touch. I really enjoy seeing photos from other lands too!!

    Ok, i'll try to get more pics with local background instead of just using my black camerabag.
