I suppose falling into things whilst setting out to do something else happens to all of us once in a while. Sitting here in the 'Dark Months' ploughing through dormant files can sometimes lead to other things and that's where some of my most recent work has come from. I had in mind the Solute gallery a while back and that was to take architectural shapes and see where I could take them with the parameters only being vertical format and 'without color' as Getty calls black and Whites...and then I thought that the addition of color would give things a different feel and then thought, 'Why am I restricting this to Architecture'?..and looked at what could be achieved by looking at landscape and something that I rarely do and that is sunsets.... so I went from this
..and it was just a question of one thing leading into another..there was no thought of landscapes in the original project but things happen, the happy accident, pushing something in a different direction... and achieving Serendipity , that unexpected bonus. So in these 'Dark Months' let your imagination run off for a gambol through the hills of post production, take off the limiters and see if 'happy accidents' take you and your images somewhere else. So why not a 'no colour landscape' as well...Dunstanburgh in the North east.
What's all this then????
An unyeilding torrent of Photo babbel full of unconfirmed facts and manufactured photo drivel.. take from it what you like, it won't change the world but may leave you feeling nauseous...
