  • Mood:

putting a crease in the moment to mark it for ever

Partly reasons are that the light hasn't been great, that my photos shelf is full, that beloved Pingu Cam has the same uneven wind-on problem that got me a 10 minute lecture from the manager of Snappy Snaps but cameras (all of them) have gone aside recently. Even the half-finished B&W disposable in the bottom of my bag is staying that way; half-finished, disposable.

Which means that I'm missing the moments. Still seeing them (green paint flecked scaffolding against a terminal blue sky, pink light on yellow leaves spattered with brown) but instead of being pressed they're escaping, moments I saw but set free. Feels strangely liberating, like letting water run out of your hands, let it go, let it flow.

Other people are still subdividing their experiences into a series of flat rectangular frames, however, and that still makes me glad. I like to hear about those odd moments when the world spun around an image and you saw a foetus riding a bicycle or a dinosaur over the rainbow? Street photography, everyday_people, or just time.

Reduction.
