It didn’t feel like an easy week. It was hard finding time to photograph, and finding something interesting too. Thanfully the barebone state of nature is nearly over. Better weather is coming and fresh greens and blues will arrive soon.
In the last couple of years I have extensively used my iPhone for my photography. The first generations had very low quality, but since the iPhone 4 it became a very usable camera with the small sensor aesthetics. Now I have an iPhone 13 and the computational technology went too far for me. It is too processed and I started to look for different camera apps which do less processing. I still consider my iPhone a Leatherman Ricoh GR, but without the good looks. Therefore I started to use my 13 years old Ricoh GRD3 again. It still has the better lens and convenience of a better grip. As long as it keeps working I will keep using it.
It was a cold and rainy week, and I get a bit fed up with the weather circumstances and the boredom of my neighborhood. Where I live is a typical bedroom suburb between two larger cities in the centre of the Netherlands. Still it is my town and I plan on documenting it more intensively. It is a way of life for many in the West.
Since this year I photograph with a new camera, my first full frame camera as a matter of fact. At some point I will elaborate on it, for now I call her Mrs Bridgers. There is no change in the focal length though and it matches well my iPhone, Ricoh GR, and the Ricoh GR Digital 3 (that I actually still use regularly).
In between the nursing, working, and keeping track of everything around our household, I still found some time to make some photographs this week. I thought I kept pretty good track of every week, but this was not week 4. No, actually it is already week 5 that I’ve finished. So I found some time to post week 1 that I somehow completely forgot, not only the post and photographs, but also the existence of that week. Ought times, I guess.
