Odds and Ends-

It’s been so long since I’ve uploaded anything on here though I thought i would make an appearence by contributing to the lens Artist- #189 odds and ends challenge hosted by Tina.

This week the theme is “Odds and Ends” Initially I was going to include photos from a folder on my computer titled “random things” which is mainly lots of photos of random objects and photographic responses to briefs and themes I have done over the years.

Then I remembered a project I started while doing a short course on building a photographic portfolio last year . I was initially inspired by minimal landscape photos that I had taken over the years and used the word unclutter to link them all together. I then explored and documented my quest to be a minimalist and unclutter my home. I had been motivated by a statement I read from a minimalist book that stated that “we can be just as content with a photo of the object, than the object itself”.

I had planned to photograph all my odds and ends before I threw them out and then make a conceptual response to this project . I did do lots of uncluttering and took lots of photos and made some videos (which i’ll upload below of more odds and ends). I did however lack motivation as areas I uncluttered became cluttered again . Though i will revisit it more in the future .

Here is a selection of odds and ends i took which remind me of their existence. Am I sad I no longer have them , No they weren’t valuable as such just nostalgic so its nice to have an image to remind me.

I also made a few timelapse videos of the process of uncluttering odds and ends. This one is suggesting how images of minimalist landscapes can assist with the motivation of uncluttering .

A Photo a Week: Dusk

I took these last Friday. I had been wanting to capture the full moon at dusk for a while though I think the crescent moon is far more mesmerising . There’s something pretty spectacular about brightly lit objects at dusk .

 

 

The moon is a loyal companion.
It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.
Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.”

I’m Back

Hi everyone it’s been such a long time since I’ve been on WordPress. Life’s busy you know how it is.201902161550306431031

I’ve decided to update my site beginning with a domain which has been funded by selling one of my of my Fine Art Prints -Boat in Fog at Red Hills Art Show. It’s from a series of prints of Fog.

This one was taken on a foggy afternoon in 2014. I love the minimal effect the fog creates on the landscape isolating the boat and also the tiny little figure of a sup boarder in the distance.

If your interested on purchasing a print please get in contact so we can discuss your requirements.aalittleboatcrop-1

The layout of the site will stay the same and I’ll primarily use the site as my portfolio. I also like participating with photography challenges and hope to do a photo a day for the month of June.

If you know of any photography challenges on here worth getting involved in please let me know and also any feedback on improvments I could make to my site would be good. I’d like to add an instagram icon link anybody know how to do that?

All the best
