A gloomy autumness day in October. Despite the prevailing darkness I still want to see and feel the struggling light. It hurts, my leg. Again after two years. The rain, cold and fog fuel it. I try to defeat it with a long stroll through a nearby forest. Climbing up and down, high trees, hills, river forelands, and covered horizons. Not even captured, nature draws high contrast sketches.

With spring most people open up after the long darkness of the winter. So am I and I become more aware of my surroundings. It is this tantalizing feeling that something is in the air. Something about to happen.

The Click

When you press the shutter there isn’t just that click of the shutter. There is also that click briefly before when you see the moment. It builds up. The light, the subject, your mood. You feel it. And some of these moments demands to be cherished. This one is for my wife.

Structure in chaos

2013, Photography

The comments from my previous post were overwhelming, but also gave me new energy. I wrote that I would be photographing again each and every day, like in a photograph a day project. Unlike in my former photograph a day project I have decied to do my editing of photographs a bit differently. The essence for me is that I take photographs daily, but have no intention of selecting one photograph a day. Sometimes I might select 10 photographs while another week it might as well be one photograph.

Making photographs helped me a lot this week. Many of the ingredients of a pleasant composition helped me structure this week’s chaos.
