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.

My entry for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge

Excitement, fear and relief

I have been pondering the Weekly Photo Challenge of last week which is Ooh, Shiny! and I think it’s fairly obvious to anyone who follows me that, what is guaranteed to distract me? What my “Ooh, shiny!” is, is…

CAMERAS!

and I had another distraction this week which had me a little on edge.

I was browsing that auction site (again) and spotted a fairly modern Voigtländer in the form of a Bessa-R.  I know that technically this is a Cosina and they just happen to own the name but it’s still a good camera.  I don’t need one of these and until then I hadn’t even thought about buying a ‘new’ camera (just the old one’s) so….  SHINY!!

Seat with a view

This is my entry for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge; Elemental

This comfortable swing seat has been placed atop this hill in this public space by I know not who.  I am sure they are close by and like to sit in comfort and watch the glorious sunset from this excellent vantage point. Continue reading “Seat with a view”

Blurred

I took this a while ago of one of my friends throwing stones into the sea whilst we were at the beach in Santa Barbara. I decided to defocus completely as an experiment.  This remains one of my favourite pictures.

Primative

I’m adding this as my entry for the Weekly Photo Challenge which this week is Satisfaction; both because I am satisfied by the result also the action of tossing stones into the sea is a very satisfying if slightly pointless activity.

Is this an interocitor?!

Made a quick visit to Disneyland this weekend, here are a few pics which I am putting as my entry into this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge – Collage

Danger! – Weekly Photo Challenge

I took this a while ago on a hike near the Hollywood sign; nearly stepped on it as my eye was stuck to the viewfinder of my camera.  Luckily my daughter was paying attention and alerted me to the little critter.

Photography can be a dangerous pastime.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth

Took this shot looking down from Verdugo mountains to Burback where it is very green and colourful after this winter’s rain.
