An out-take from last year’s trip to Edinburgh. Going through the images again recently i noticed someone waving back at me – so much for not being spotted!
Slightly fuzzy? Well… yes does though it appears to be movement blur. They walk fast on Princes Street! It made me smile though and they seem happy to be in the photo. Obviously i was concentrating so much on taking the image i failed to notice them.
Sadly this year’s trip, due to start yesterday, had to be cancelled due to my mother’s illness and the deterioration in her health. Another time. For now, it’s about planning future trips and thinking about the photography i want to create.
The bedroom i had during my Norfolk trip ( I visited at the end of last month) featured a rather large bedside table that was soon covered with this little lot.
I realised that it’s a pretty good appraisal of me and my interests. A portrait even. Not much is missing from the picture.
It also reminds me of a photo i took in Callander, Scotland a couple of years ago that was along a similar theme.
This month on Instagram I’m adding images from a photo project i did five years ago in Norfolk. The idea, that came together largely by accident, was to create photographs ‘capturing the unique character of the English county of Norfolk‘ using a mobile phone. The images were taken within a sixteen day period from June 23rd to the 9th of July 2011.
Sea, Sky, Sand and Street as it became known as eventually developed into a book released in 2011 and was my first serious iPhone photography project. I suppose it proved, to me at least, that mobile photography was here to stay.
To celebrate the fifth anniversary I’ve decided to add the images to my Instagram feed (I wasn’t on Instagram at the time) with one or two images being added each day until the middle of July.
The photographs can be found on my Instagram feed at:- https://www.instagram.com/richardflintphoto
