I don’t know about you, but I tend to accumulate photos that I’ve marked for the blog and then never used. Years pass and they stay put.
I want to clear out my photo album and decided on doing a little compilation of images, spanning from summer to autumn. The images aren’t all from this year but the theme ties them together.
Different in style, some look good with greater contrast and some are light-toned, sun-filtered. For a photo critic, there would be a lot of corrective points to be made in this post. I know that and don’t mind, skipping happily along.
They are summery and tell a story if you are just willing to listen. (Are you?)
Whether the stories are nice ones or not is a whole other story. Water tempting some to swim might look very unattractive to others. Staring at things through a lens might be a turn-off for many, too.
But the photos all say, “I was here, and I saw this.”
“I stopped and I looked. It made an impression on me for some reason. Will I be able to show my reasoning through my shot without words?”
And now I’m sharing these moments in an autumnal hello from -2°C in the mornings and summer gear buried away back in the far end of the closet. Scarves and beanies, where did I put you again?
They represent precious moments in between the never-ending 8-hour stints at the office without looking out the window. The last sun rays escape silently but they don’t go unnoticed.
