Resumption 2016

Five years ago (2011) I started this photography blog with the aim of at least one post a week. During this time I’ve more or less kept to my schedule and have posted according to my given subject. These were “Benches”, “Duet”, “Out of….”, my favourite of all motives “Portraits” and then “Brandenburg and Elsewhere”, whereby the last subject never really got beyond week 12. It’s really been fun but difficult to keep up, especially to the standard that wanted to set myself.

Now it’s time for a change, rather than go 53 weeks on a given subject I’m going to concentrate on posting what pleases me without the boundaries of subject or time.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the journey so far and that you’ll continue to accompany me in my quest for that special shot.

I’ll leave this now with my favourite photography quote which I also posted in my first ever blog entry.

“It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter, because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the extraordinary.”

– David Bailey – in “Face,” (London), Dec 1984.
