From a photographic perspective, things have been quiet. A combination of a busy schedule, a change in priorities, and a general lack of motivation, has meant that I have not shot an image for months.
Here we are, over four months into 2015, and photographically I have nothing to show for it.
Until now, that is.
Tonight for the first time this year, I published a new image, one captured this year.
We have family in town, and our visitors are staying in an apartment close to the Sydney. From their balcony, there is a magnificent view of the Sydney skyline, from the ANZAC Bridge across to much of the city.
Tonight while visiting, I decided to shoot some twilight images of the city, and here is what I shot:
This is just a small part of the view from the balcony, shot with a telephoto lens to hone in on some of the skyline as twilight descended.
Over the past few days, I’ve been starting to develop an itch — the kind which makes me want to get back into photography again. It’s all a balancing act, but I have some time off, and soon I plan to start experimenting with something I’ve not done before.
I am successful, it will be a new style of photography for me. It’s something I’ve seen and quite liked, and while it’s been done before, and done very well, it hasn’t yet been done by me.
So, perhaps a new photographic project, combined with some time to re-engage, will get me back into the process of image making.
I might even find the inspiration to shoot a seascape again, too!
