They crew at Petapixel shared this great little video of a street photography lesson with John Free.  Some of the things he says make complete sense and really resonate with me.  Take pictures with a purpose in mind.  At the end of the video I really liked how he described an exercise he did years ago with his 5 year old son.  He gave him a blank book and had him take a picture a day to place in it and write a description of the image.  What a great idea, I think I may do this with the boys and maybe have them start on the first day of the new year and do it as a blog.  Hmmm, wonder if they will be up for it?
