Having kids is a hard work. They drive me nuts, daily, both of them. The chores never end, and I’m quite amazed that our washing machine hasn’t exploded yet. Anyways, the point I’m trying to make here is that you need some sort of outlet, no matter what it is that drives you crazy sometimes. My passion is film but at the moment, I don’t really have the time for it. Schools out for the summer and I don’t always work, so as I mentioned in my previous post “The lay of the land” , I’m trying to improve my photographic skills, especially when it comes to landscape photography.
I try to find some time on days like this one to just go, somewhere, and get inspired by my surroundings. Today I took the smaller roads and ended up in some random spots. Nic Cave provided the soundtrack today. I came home with a 150 shots and these are the ones that really worked for me today. But mainly, I got to clear my head a bit – and that’s what mattered today. Plus I got to try out some vintage m42 prime lenses (Mirage 135 / Tokina 35 / Makinon 28) which have been sitting in my bag for a while just waiting to be put to work.
