Day 209 / 365

It’s a window again.
The instant film wasn’t delivered on time to carry on with polaroid week so that’s on hold.
Instead you get a lazy summers afternoon shot, well that’s the look anyway. The reality was slightly different.

Day 208 / 365

Busting out of the digitalism a little. I’ve been thinking of doing a polaroid week and perhaps this will be the beginning of it.
Yes it’s a real life polaroid print (well Impossible PX 600 SS print). Big huge massive props to the Impossible Project boys & girls for getting this stuff in to the world.
I forgot to cover this one from daylight as it ejected from the camera, hence the odd ghosting in parts.

Day 207 / 365

One from the road last night. Finally able to get a few more miles in on the bike this week, twas bit chilly though to say it’s late July.

iPhone – Camera+ with a little fake pinhole action (which made me want to try and shoot a pinhole camera from my bike).

Day 206 / 365

It’s amazing what sights there are to be found when wandering just outside the city walls.
Pink, pink and green.

Fuji X100

Again the Fuji X100 reminds me of how well it renders colour. I’m not sure how but Fuji have nailed it in this respect.

Day 203 / 365

Kinda reminded me of a certain friends 365 shot from a while ago. It’s funny how much we’re affected in what we shoot by our sub-conscious.
Left or right, you choose, but one thing is for certain, you can’t carry on this way.
As I say my sub-conscious is trying to remind me of a decision I promised I’d make this year. Those who have been with the blog for a while may know that this year I promised a year of refinement and focus. To really figure out where I’m headed in this life as a photographer, to shoot the things I really yearn to shoot and not rely on some of the jobs I’ve come to rely on in the past. Sure these jobs pay the bills and provide some giggles, however they also distract me from committing 100% to my dreams by giving me a safety net upon which I always know I can fall. They make me lazy in going with my ideas and as such I’ve realised have had me just floating through the last few years. This realisation came to me around about this time last year and so I decided to do something about it. Time to man up and take charge of this whole thing, this project was just one part of the process. I’d say personally this year has been my most creative, my hardest but also my most enjoyable. I’m starting to feel in charge of my own destiny again, a while back I wrote that although I wasn’t on the path to my goals yet I felt sure I knew where that path was. Well now I’m darn sure I’ve just caught a glimpse of it and I’m close to setting foot in a new direction.


I’ll be waiting

Day 201 / 365

The light was particularly beautiful as I walked from the car park to the studio early this morning. I spotted this lonely little fella hanging around waiting to guard his owners stead should it return. I just loved the tones and colours so out came the Fuji and bingo the days 365 was in the bag by 7am.



I should be back to regular service next week with the 365 and the blog. The posts have been rather brief of late due to time constraints, so sorry for those who enjoy the odd rant or spillage from my mind. Trust me I have plenty rumbling around in there at the moment, I just need some time sit and think before trying to form it into a coherent stream.
