This is clearly not a matter of skill

I went out today to start taking pictures for my first photography assignment. "Landscapes and/or architecture," I mused, "This should be easy."

My pictures of landscapes (mostly some wooded paths) are largely uninteresting and repetitive. This picture of a bug, which I shot on luck alone? Fucking perfect.

I am saddened, and understand why everyone wishes to take nice, simple close-ups of pretty flowers. Pretty flowers are easy to take good pictures of. Landscapes, not so much. They are filled with people, uneven lighting, and a few brightly colored objects which you cannot easily move out of the way because you're taking a shot that covers something the size of a football field.

Cut in case anybody's freaked by close-ups of bugs. It's a beetle of some sort, I think. Nothing too creepy.
