week 48 | 2011

2011, Photography, Project, weekly project

When the days become short, the Northern Hemisphere stays mostly grey, and people might be feeling damped, it becomes noticeably harder to photograph and write. It sure does in my case. I want to dedicate time to some projects I have in mind, but that is also my problem. I have hardly any time available. I have a day job, family (in random order), and that all takes up necessary time. After last week I thought about doing more color this week.

The photographs of this ongoing project will also be updated here.

  1. “More color”, he says, and then there’s three pictures with yellow instead of white… 🙂 anyhow, you keep me going.
    Although I sure would like a peek into your Lightroom or whatever you use to process these… I bet I’m not alone in this.

  2. I don’t know how you do it but every time you manage to capture my imagination with these profound images, excellent job again my friend, very well done. I just leave this.

  3. One and Seven are so wonderfully diverse, one outward, one inward, yet both have similar feels, depicting, perhaps, standoffs of different sorts.

    One wonders at the technique of the seeming diffractions of 7, there’s some of you and some of the 20/1.7, but the rest?

    As always, as the others have said, a treat.

  4. I like the noise on your photos, Wouter. Did you do anything in post process with the noise or is it like that from the camera?
    It’s really interesting to see different colors of the season. I’m still having full sunshine and very little rain considering it’s suppose to be monsoon season here in the tropics. Nice to see you do more colors!

  5. I love the moodiness of these. I am always surprised each week with your work. It’s a joy to come and look at these each week. I love when you write about your week too.

  6. Wouter, I understand where you are coming from as far as winter in the northern hemisphere and juggling the limited daylight and family and work situation. Summer affords so much more freedom timewise. I tend to shoot (process as) a lot more black and white in the winter. The colors are mostly dull to me. Black and white seems more suitable.

    This winter I’m going to make an effort to shoot less landscape and more stroll photography if I can keep my fingers from freezing off.

    1. Although I am mostly occupied with my stroll photography I do sometimes miss the moment I took landscape photographs. With landscape photography I really appreciate the special touch light can contribute to there moments.

  7. That’s the point, Wouter: Projects in mind but no time. A year ago I started walking the streets at night, taking pictures, starting a project. One of the reason were: That’s the only time I had. And that#s the reason why the seventh just leaves me speechless. Another brilliant essay!
    All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.
