First of apologies for my prolonged absenteeism, I would love to claim I have been away taking stunning shots with no connection, but alas no. I started a new job 3 weeks ago and it’s been a lot of work with some pretty long days, leaving little time to photograph, process and blog.
I think it’s best to discuss my processing as minimal, I’m almost ashamed to admit it but it’s true, I like to take photographs and make an image in the camera, but I have never been into what happened after as long as it gave the result I wanted, it’s the reason I used to shoot transparency and I like to think that I still employ the same thought when taking the shot that I did then.
It also represents a little more to me on a personal level. The ebb and flow of the tides draw a parallel to the ebb and flow of life; sometimes the tide is high, sometimes it’s low. When it’s high you can miss what is beneath but this is uncovered in those low moments. To enjoy the whole of the scene you need to experience both states and perhaps reach an equilibrium somewhere between the two.
