It has been a long and sometimes difficult week.
There have been highs and lows, but somehow yesterday was a particularly flat day. I was on the South Coast, and though it was as beautiful as ever, I just couldn’t see anything that appealed for a photograph. When I was supervising thesis students who said they had writer’s block I told them to put their fingers on the keyboard and type something. It is easier to improve what you have than it is to improve emptiness. So, I pointed my camera at the waves crashing on Barrett’s Reef against the background of Pencarrow.
Not great, but better than an empty card. Next I was at the other end of Lyall Bay and in the distance, the Aratere was steaming from the local gloom into the sunlight of Marlborough. Perhaps a metaphor for the week ahead.
I hope tomorrow’s images will be better.
