Having prepared a post, and written an email last week…. I eventually realised, when I found the email still in my draft box, I hadn’t actually sent it and as Leanne, despite her many skills is not psychic, I missed out being at the party. Here’s hoping – after struggling for an entry for this week until I remembered these shots I took whilst returning home at the end of a beautiful day touring some Croatian islands on a speed boat – that I get there this week.
I’m not sure if, having come home with so many photos of steps, it says more about an obsession I may have or the hilly terrain of Croatia. Either way, I think some of them look great developed in black and white for Leanne’s Monochrome Madness Challenge. Hope you enjoy them too.
Often, it is difficult to keep this post to just 6 images (and sometimes I don’t) and then, sometimes it is difficult to come up with 6 images but I always try. This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge theme is ‘Cover Art’ so coming up with 6 images is going to be a challenge. I thought I’d link my images to singles from an album that I seem to be listening to a lot recently. As I try to get back to running, Moloko’s Statues (it’s an oldie but a goodie) is the album that helps me put one foot in front of the other at the moment. The track titles appear as captions to each of the images below.
Over and Over
The Only Ones
Cannot Contain This
This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge is another tricky one. What is humanity? If you asked one hundred people to define humanity, I wonder if you would get one hundred answers.
At the Eastbourne Steampunk Festival, it was lovely to see all ages come together to enjoy the creativity of the costumes, the music, the artwork et al.
This weeks Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge is adventure. It happens to coincide with something engaging I saw on Saturday. The Coastal Currents arts festival has been kicking off this week and on Saturday we caught a 10-15 minute performance/installation/sculpture in the park. Melt Down, choreographed by Rosemary Lee surely must be an emotional and intellectual adventure for performer and audience alike. An enforced 10 minute meditation and attempted interpretation of watching these men melt into the grass encourages a mental adventure through all the potential possibilities of what it could (or not) all mean.
I am so enjoying working with chemicals and enlargers and stuff. Here is a selection of scans from 35mm negatives I developed last week. One of them, not sure which yet, will get sent to Leanne Cole for this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.
