As autumn approaches and summer ends I am looking back and reviewing what I did photographically this summer and the answer is "not much". But I'm OK with that. I thought I'd be bothered by it but I'm not because I believe that in anything we do, we have ups and downs and this summer was one of my downs.
It was down because I feel like my attention was focused elsewhere. On what, I do not know but elsewhere it was and that's as good an explanation as you are going to get since that's the only one I have.
I do feel quite charged up for autumn though I don't know why. I just have this feeling it's going to be a banner year and it all starts now.
I already brought one creation to life. I saw a video on Hadouken photography a while back where you try and create a scene that looks like it came out of Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat. I suggested it as the August Level 2 Photo Challenge at photography.ca and managed to create not one but two entries for the month. The key for me was that these were images I made, not images I found.
I will continue to enjoy stumbling across interesting things in the world like the golden leaf above, however, I want to spend more time making images instead of just finding them.
