2013 Picture of the Week - Week 30
2007 was when I returned to SLR photography in earnest. While there was new magic available in the advancing technologies it was the allure of finding new instants worthy of recording that made the return a permanent one. This image, at the cusp of summer has only the elements that were available and positioned as you see them here. The world is increasingly full of “make believe”, perspectives and constructs that stretch, bend and polish reality. It can be beautiful and exciting and even fun. But the creation of an image by planning, then seeking, then framing, then capturing has its own attractiveness. The difference is that of imagining a ray of sun on a cool day and actually standing in one.
