Posted to Six Word Saturday; hosted by Debbie at Travel with Intent.
I’ve reached a new place in my photographic learning. Shots that I was really happy with just a few months ago now seem a bit meh. Sometimes I need to re-shoot. Sometimes, I just want to play with the images in editing tools.
Yesterday I posted a double-exposure image composed of two photos I took at the same time and place.
I quite like both shots, but there is something about that razor-wire fence that disturbs me every time I see it. Behind the fence is a yacht club. Members store little boats in the club compound, so I guess the fence is to keep their property safe.
I can’t help thinking though, of the millions of people around the world who are currently held behind razor wire; in prisons, detention centres, Gaza.
In my everyday life, I’m outside the wire. But I wonder how small a shift in the political wind would be required to change that.
I spent much of the weekend in my friend Claire’s studio, photographing the painting and drawing workshops she was running.
In the quiet moments, I turned my lens on the studio itself, including the contents of a shelf tucked away in a back corner.
Regular Random is a photo challenge hosted by Desley Jane at Musings of a Frequently Flying Scientist. If you’d like to join in:
- choose a subject or a scene
- spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
- try to not interfere with the subject, instead see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
- have fun!
- tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to Desley’s post
