From the tone of my last few posts I must surely have reached rock bottom?
Alas, yesterday was dire. I really wasn’t even interested in picking up my camera. Now that is a sure sign of something unusual. By nine pm I was in danger of having my first day with no photo since January 1, 2011.
I had not set foot outside all day, and it was too late, too cold, and too dark to start now. What could I use to make a picture? Most photographers disparage “found art” … an image that is merely a record of someone else’s creativity. The only way to get away with “found art” images is if the depiction is in itself creative, and adds something to the original work.
The two images with which I avoid the break my photo-a-day tradition are of the same little sculpture (a gift to my wife from our lovely elder daughter, Catherine). Whether I get away with making a viewable image is for you to judge. By the way, neither is a monochrome image.
I am looking forward to the uphill side of this journey.
