Today is World photo day on the microblog platform. From the their blog:-
The 24-Hour Photo Challenge starts in less than 24 hours!
Starting at 12 noon U.S. Central Daylight Time on Tuesday Oct. 13, post one photo from where you are.
This equates to 04:00 here in Australia, now till 04:00 Thursday.
This morning was a typical one except over my morning coffee I decided to watch the recording of the Apple event.
Here then is my first photo of the project. A still life at home, in Melbourne, Australia.
In my early years of studying photography this kind of image would not have been considered. The success for me about this image is the mixed lighting sources firstly. Secondly the brief moment where the woman is glancing down on the CRT TV. These things combined with the kind of meta reference of the shadow of the tree outside. As an indexical marker a nice reminder of the light outside.
This forms part of my view most days from around 7:30 to 4:30 each day. The space is shared with me by either one or both of our kittens Spike & Smudge.
This room has a Northerly aspect. I get to watch the light all day. It’s marvellous. The kittens are good company too.
I recently read somewhere, perhaps in a Bryan Formals newsletter, that one way to cope with the overwhelming news of the Pandemic, begin one’s day by Output rather than Input.
So this morning I went out and made pictures in the still wet backyard, we’ve had tons of rain here, it cried out to have some pictures made. Then I wrote this blog post. I have yet to open my email or a webpage other than flickr.
