Themes: Water

Another review of themes whilst I take a moment to re-calibrate

Water has featured a lot in my life and as such it is not surprising it is a co-star in much of my photography over the years; be it canals, streams, fountains, rivers, lakes or the sea I have shot it at some point.  I am happiest when I am near, on or even in the water and if I can combine that with a camera (or a bike) even better!

WPC: Favourite

The Weekly Photo Challenge calls for “most meaningful photo from 2017. This isn’t necessarily the ‘best’ photo you’ve taken this year… ”

I’m not the best at looking back (through a year’s worth of pictures), so decided to use the opportunity to lay the groundwork for the next 12 months and reflect on where I am now.

I literally posted this photo only yesterday and it represents a few things for me.

Firstly, this is an unsettling time for me as a blogger as I have been struggling with what I think I am doing. This photo is in this post which I feel might be the start of better content from me and will (hopefully) be more representative of my work here.

Second, I took this with a camera I had allowed to get forgotten on my shelf and was reminded of what a great little camera it is (more images from that camera are due).

Thirdly, the figure captured seems to me to be someone contemplating and letting his mind wander.  He may be contemplating the fish he’s hoping to catch or much bigger things but I think this contemplation matches the state I myself have been in the last few weeks.

Lastly, this was shot on film and although I love love love my digital camera, I can’t help but like the tactile and physical process of using film to make images.
