Coming undone

Coming undone // 24 04 15

114 // 365

After my dry spell of literally no motivation or ideas, I felt motivated yesterday and this morning to shoot something a bit more conceptual. I had no clear idea on either day what I wanted to do exactly, but I picked up some props and went out with my (more or less traditional) 10 minutes before work. I went to the same place both days, it is on the way to work; I just have to pull over hop out of the car, walk about 30 steps and I have fields, bushes and trees – whichever I want!

Yesterday I was behind some bushes (that sounds a bit dodgy : P ), and today my camera was just in front of the bushes, so I was quite literally 10 steps away from where I was the day before.

I had no idea where I was going with this, but I’d half edited it on break/lunch and I knew that I wasn’t 100% happy with it when I left work. I did have a back up shot that I am more than happy with though so I wasn’t too worried. Another thing which was somewhat out of the ordinary was that it was sunny when I went out, and I knew it would remain sunny. For shots like this I almost never shoot when the sun is out (save sunset/sunrise) but I thought I’d try it to see what would happen.

Then, as we were watching Masterchef suddenly loads of ideas started coming to me. No idea where from, as Masterchef doesn’t exactly scream creative art just fancy plate arrangements, but I’m not complaining! ^_^ I originally had this idea for another shot, but as soon as I got upstairs and flipped it upside down I knew this was something which would work with it – the blank over exposed sky was just screaming for some dust : P

Giving up

I spend massive chunks of my life asleep. I love being asleep but I do not love being tired, and I find that I am tired more often than not.

A nap to me can be something which lasts 4 hours. If I don’t nap in the day I struggle to say away past 10pm (on a good day). There is no way I could go on a night out and not have a nap. The times when I have tried to do this I’ve fallen asleep whilst on the night out. Then people assume I was hysterically drunk. Nope, just tired.
