Where is the time going, eh? It’s September and we’re heading back into the darkness and well, slightly colder rain.
It also means that we’re closing in on 100 days to go until the end of this current photo-a-day project.
One big reason for forcing yourself to shoot every day is that whilst there will be days where you really can’t summon the energy to shoot, you do anyway and sometimes things work out.
I had many days where the motivation was in short supply this month, but on those days my subconscious seems to come up with a plan.
These lemons were the result of subconscious me deciding that shooting some stuff from the fridge on the surface of a mirror seemed like a good idea. Luckily I had three lemons in the fridge –rule of odds ahoy! Oddly, it seemed to work out ok.
I did get out for a few walks, but I’m a little bored of walking the same circular routes over and over. This month I took a walk around the other side of the tracks, onto the industrial estates and hunted for some new subjects.
One thing I did do this month is get some photos printed. I have a store on Fine Art America where you can buy my photos printed on all sorts of things –including phone cases and shower curtains.
I had a large-ish print of what I’ve dubbed “Red Forest” sent out to me, rolled in a tube. From ordering it took around 4 days to arrive and is on some good quality paper. I’m quite impressed.
On the subject of printing, a few photos from this month have been added to my inventory, which is always a good feeling. At least if I decide to stop shooting every day come January I’ll have banked some reasonable shots from all this.
With that said, even though some days feel like a bind, forcing myself to create “something” is good for my overall wellbeing, so I might stick with it in 2022.
Feel free to head over to the store and have a mooch around. In the meantime, on with September.
