I’ll join yours if you join mine. Let me know in the comments if you have a Facebook page for your art, too. We can all spread the word together.
Features in the last week:
Downtown was featured in Cityscapes and City Skylines:
Enter was featured in Melbourne & Victoria:
School’s started for the year this week, so officially my head is supposed to be busy with writing rather than photography now. But writing’s so much more difficult and draining – photography’s my escape from having to think so hard. So I’ll probably still be snapping away and fiddling on Photoshop as a very well-practised form of procrastination!
My Holga and I have been having a little love affair lately. I finally got some negatives from a 2008 trip to the US scanned, and I’ve been taking lots of black-and-white snaps over summer. I just love all that gorgeous grain, the moody monochrome, those sumptuous squares, the alluring imperfections and glorious glitches. Every time I get a roll back, some get thrown out but others surprise me. It’s made photography fun again. (Plus, a plastic toy camera is light as a feather and easy to chuck in your bag.) Here are some of the Holga snaps I’ve posted so far:…
I’ve also had some features since my last journal entry. Here are the recent ones.
Featured in Photographers of RedBubble and Oh So Emotional:
In The Black & White Enthusiast group. How cool is that? Plus, they featured my photo Follow the path.
Meanwhile, I’m still working through all the snaps I took at the Melbourne Show back in September. A few of them have snuck into my RB profile, but my flickr profile is slowly filling up with oodles of tackiness. Mega Rockstar showbag anyone? (Close your eyes if they’re sensitive.) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
One of my Holga shots, ‘Sunlight on Merri Creek’, was featured this week in the Melbourne & Victoria group:
I finally got all the Holga shots I took during my USA trip in 2008 scanned. Some of them turned out beautifully. I confess I miss the whole film thing in this digital age: the glitches and grain, the surprise of seeing how your photos actually turned out after they’re processed and in your hands… and with a Holga the unpredictability is part of the fun. You just never know what you’ll end up with when you shoot with a plastic toy camera!
Here’s a sneak peek of Chicago and Charleston, South Carolina:
I haven’t posted a journal entry for a while, but I just wanted to share with you the photos that have been featured in groups in the past four weeks. (I’ve just learnt how to do clickable thumbnails – yippee!)
Cityscapes and City Skylines:
Winner of Bubblers’ Weekly Challenge – The Letter P:
Oh So Emotional:
Who Needs Color For Beauty? – Black & White Art At Its Best:
This week, The softness of spring was featured in The Woman Photographer:
And Hosier Lane was featured in The Art of Intrigue:
I also, somehow, accidentally deleted a couple of photos last night – Sand and sky and Escape – but they’re back up now. It’s a bummer losing all those comments and favourites, but that’ll teach me to… I don’t know, something. Whatever it was that I did. I won’t do that again. ;-)
