Back from COVID

I seem to have lucked out with my first COVID infection. There will probably be more but this one wiped me out for a while. I'm slowly getting back into taking pictures so will update this more frequently from now on.


Inspirations #15 - all over again by Maria Corriera

Blinding white with a contrasting black photographer and their shadow. The scale of the lines in the wall behind and the cracks the floor draw the eye as does the seating. The juxtaposition of whites of the black with a minimal amount of grey heightens the impact of the lack of colour and gives the photograph real punch. Via Maria Correia at 500px.

 

 


Inspirations #14 - Surf

November 15, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Inspiration has been difficult to find recently. My day job requires a lot of physical energy and is draining, which is why its called "work", I guess. My camera comes with me every day but it is tricky to switch from a very task oriented role into something creative but I'll keep going! This picture by Hengki Koentjoro is a bit of a reflection of my current mood - grey, washed out and distant. As usual, it comes from 500px and can be found here.

Continuing the theme of tension in travelling...


Inspirations #12 - Underground No. 10

I've been thinking about motion/travel a lot recently. I love the feeling of potential in this photo, the tension between knowing where I am and the uncertainty of what lies around the corner, or above ground when I emerge.
