As many of you know I spend far too much time in front of the computer.‚ Being the admin on Photography.ca and Pets.ca is a great job and even though I do take pictures regularly, I often go many days without shooting and this just has to change.
Three weeks ago I went on a photo tour in the Rockies with Darwin Wiggett who has been interviewed on our podcast a few times already. Man, that Darwin Wiggett is inspirational and I came back on a photo high. Darwin has been shooting an image a day for well over a year I believe, and he calls it his daily snap. Here is Darwin’s daily snap for today December 3rd 2010.
Although I am envious of Darwin’s passion and commitment, I know myself pretty well. I’ll try hard to post images that are shot by me and others, or post vintage photography that I dig. I’ll even write a few lines about what intrigues me about the images. I should be able to do this several times a week each week — but not every single day. Anyway, effective immediately and thanks again Darwin for your additional inspiration, I’ll start posting photos of the day as often as I can.
Here’s an image I shot just yesterday a few meters from my home. The day was very overcast and windy and puddles reflecting the city were everywhere. The wind caused ripples in the water and gave it a painterly feel which caught my eye immediately. Because the scene already had very little colour I thought it best to convert it to BW using Silver efex pro. Although the shot does feel a bit ‘dark’ to my eye, it did represent the mood of the day and the changing seasons. Please feel free to critique or comment on any aspect of this image.
