Day 344 / 365

Huge catch-up posting today.
Busy old time as the year end nears, finishing up some jobs, checking invoices and starting to set up some portfolio shoots over the Winter period. I have managed to keep shooting the 365’s though. Mainly on the iPhone simply as the other cameras are in work mode. It’s been fun playing with the phone camera again, it’s even more fun looking back over the weeks shots and remembering moments I’d almost forgotten.

I loved the pattern the streetlight made so made a niffty B&W shot and tiled the thing. Kind of hurts my eyes in thumbnail view.

So that’s me caught up again. I have to admit with the end of this project nearing I’m pretty done on the thing. I’m desperately trying to rally some enthusiasm to go out with a bang (ha haa pun not really intended but i’ll take it). At the moment though I’m being pretty lazy just posting iphone shots which If I’m honest are more moments captured then photographs made.
Perhaps that is what todays composite image is about, the whole rinse and repeat thing I’ve felt of late. One of the ideals behind this 365 was to get me out trying new things and shooting new ideas through the year. At first it worked well in forcing me to question my vision. Now I’m feeling my attention being drawn elsewhere, being honest it’s a better place where it is being drawn (my portrait portfolio) but still this project needs finishing in the manner it was started.
Okay moan over, I got myself into this project so it’s time to hunker on down and stoke the fires for the last twenty-one shots. 🙂

Loved this little bike, all cool with white wall tyres, lay back bars, a hip paint job and flames then finish off with a wicker shopping basket.
Spotted whilst working at the Royal Northern College of Music.

Day 310 / 365

Cute Alert!
Just in case I wasn’t busy enough we decided it was about time we added to the family around these parts. After spending a good few months looking for a suitable rescue dog, we figured let’s just get a puppy and bring him up right.
I imagine amusing puppy stories won’t be far away. Plus I now have an emergency go to for any 365 problem days that might occur. . . . . . .

That’s enough self indulgence for the project, back to real photographs tomorrow.

Light & Lines Again

Day 244 / 365

Getting my hustle on again so not much time dedicated to todays shot. I just saw this light streaming through a window and down these stone steps this morning. I loved the interplay between the straight lines and the odd little reflected curves of light at the top.

iPhone-tastic.

A couple of irons in the fire at the moment, I have the rider portrait series to finish up (well at least the initial series), I have a pretty big portrait project I’m needing to get people on board with so that’s got me thinking hard. Plus I’m currently about to shoot a whole batch of new work for my portrait portfolio as it’s been neglected lately and I’m about to release a new art series onto my Photoshelter site. This is all in between the work I’m committed to doing already this September that I mentioned the other day. Am I crazy? no, I’m at my best when I’m busy, ideas come more freely and I enjoy my work infinitely more. Getting my hustle on means I can’t hear the voices that doubt me in the depths of my mind. They’re the voices that haunt me in the depth of Winter after three weeks without a hint of a commission and no personal work planned . . . . . . . . . Not this year my friends, times are changing around these 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).
