I guess the thing about having a blog is that you need to update it, to add to it. To adhere to this, I guess I need to take more photographs, write more about them and post it up here. And I guess I need to be consistent. I am not sure how easy this will be for me to do, but I will try. It won’t be a daily thing. I will be doing very well if it is a weekly thing. Time will tell. As my wife said – “you have two flickr accounts, an instagram account and now you are adding a blog!” Perhaps, I am crazy to take this on, but….
Yesterday I ventured out with both cameras (iPhone and D7000) into Cork city centre. I had an idea of what I wanted to shoot and how I wanted to shoot it. With the D7000 I wanted to get more shots of people blurred out as they walked past a blank wall; shots I would later process into two colours. With the iPhone I wanted to blur it all up. Post as I go to Instagram and later choose the ones I like and app those snaps us with Snapseed.
The best of plans, but did not work out as I wished. The first obstacle was the drizzle. It did not appear to be raining, but a blanket of drizzle had descended. The second hindrance was my reluctance to stay for too long in the one position to get a photograph. I do not like shooting in my hometown and as a result I hurry too much. Getting back and looking at the handful of shots I managed to get I am frustrated that I did not persevere and try to compose with more care.
Impatience! The next time. Here are a selection of the instagram shots from yesterday. The DSLR shots will go up some time in the future.
