Thoughts on Feeling within Creativity.

Quote

Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” — Don McCullin

This quote rings so true for me. I look beyond the surface at what i’m photographing. Take an autumn leaf for example. The texture, the way the light falls on it. The veins in the leaves and the sound of them when the move in a gentle breeze. Dead flora is a great subject to photograph it instantly catches my eye when on my photowalks. This subject is not only available in Winter or Autumn. The remnants of past seasons can always be found if you look hard and long enough.

Underground

Rather than continue to upload images on social media about my outing to London this April I thought I would take it a step further and publish a series of images as a photobook that can be viewed online.

So here it is. ….. “Underground” – A photographic illustration from a commuters point of view on the London Underground Rail Network.

New Beginnings – The 3rd Day of Spring.

You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep spring from coming. – Pablo Neruda

20th March to 19th June sees the season of Spring. Vegetation appears, flowers bloom, blossom falls and the nights get lighter, longer and warmer. The season of new life and new beginnings both in the animal kingdom and the plant kingdom.
