Yesterday I finally found myself with a camera. I also found myself with face flat on the cold grass. The sun was starting to set, and it felt a little appropriate to just lay on the level of the grass. The days, weeks, and months have been rollings by. Exciting opportunities, challenges, and everything else in between has been coming so fast since August. That small moment to humble myself with the grass showed me that it at least makes a much better view when looking up to the sun.
I went on a walk yesterday; my favorite kind of walks, actually: A derive. Which I’m guessing is french fora meaningless walk.
But really, it’s the best way to get thinking, get fresh air, and get good photos. Lacking inspiration? Just go outside when the sun is about to set, but still bright enough to cast golden yellow highlighted colors all over the outdoors. Light is an amazing thing, and it’ll turn any old and insignificant thing into a miraculous work of art.
Finally, portraiture! Since I’ve started this project I noticed that I’ve been living the life of a blogging photographer…socially weary, and constantly taking photos of still life around the house.
The last part was a joke. (Ok, kind of a joke).
No, that’s not day 1, its day (negative) 1.
Day -1 doesn’t exist, Thats cheating, you say? Well this is just part of my pre-365 day photo mission. I will officially start tonight, but until then here are some photos I took a couple days before. I’ve been trying to start this project some days ago but even since then i’ve missed some days. So starting after this I will begin with positive integers.
