780 – Atmosphere

I have had the distinct feeling that the morning walks are a bit jaded, especially at this time of year when an increasing portion of the walk is done in the dark. I must have thousands of very boring pictures of the Spinnaker taken during the walks between the autumnal and spring equinoxes.

Just occasionally some form of inspiration takes hold and I go out on the morning walk with a goal in mind. For example if I know a certain ship is coming in I will try to get to the waterfront in time to see it. Or, some photographic goal.

Take this morning for example, what I wanted to do was to get some atmosphere in to my photos. I thought that I might have a bit of a problem doing this directly on the iphone, so I ended up manipulating the picture in the iPhoto app. The facilities available are not extensive in comparison to the major apps, they were enough to produce the effort at the top. For comparison, here is the original, I manipulated picture;

I’m not talking about my photographic abilities, but the capability of the software. Which I think is not too bad.

Now, when i have a project in mind I get excited thinking about it and it becomes a real pleasure to get up and get out. One of the things about me that really annoys me is the issue I have with imagination. I’m really not very good at coming up with ideas. I need to have something to prompt me. A good magazine article or a book can do the trick.

If I could go out every day with a photographic project in mind, that would be really good.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
