I’m still having a very slow start to the year photographically. I desperately need to find space for a day to get out with the camera gear on my own.
I am also trying to keep a camera with me most of the time (increasingly, the Fujifilm X100F or X-Pro2) to improve my chances of finding opportunities to take photos.
In the interests of getting this week notes thing going, here’s a simple summary of the past 8/9 days:
- Last weekend we drove out to Corbridge with the family to go to RE. Lovely picturesque town, maybe one to go back to for photography
- This weekend just gone, we walked down to Spanish City in Whitley Bay for lunch. I took a few snaps with the Fuji X100F while I waited for the family to arrive, mostly playing with the curved white wall in the landscaped garden, seeing if I could get a nice composition in black and white.
- I did try to brave Storm Ciara for a few quick photos while I was passing through Cullercoats but didn’t have much time and, as is so often the case, the light got interesting just as I started driving away. Later that evening, I made the mistake of heading out without a camera and was duly gutted to find the super moon rising above the horizon with only my iPhone to capture it with. I usually make sure to have a camera with me in the car when going out, but had just taken it indoors to offload the storm photos. Live and learn (hopefully)…
- I haven’t managed to do any further work on SceneMapper unfortunately, though I did push a minor update to the TestFlight alpha a couple of weeks ago.
- Inspired by this Nick Carver video a while back, I recently spoke to a couple of people at Sage about making a series of photos of the headquarters building in Newcastle. Sage is moving to new offices towards the end of the year and I think it would be cool to document the old place as we get ready to leave.
