The language of lines (through a lense)

Although I only had a couple of hours at the studio and felt quite unfocussed I had a massively productive day. Sometimes when you don't over-think / over-work things they fall into place rather easily.

I was also reminded today of the important lesson I learnt as a student of photographing work in progress regularly. As a student as we were required to document our work and consequently I had to learn to take decent photos using a film SLR. I could never have known at the time just how important I would continue to find that process or how helpful it would become in the digital age of social media. A useful and timeless/timely lesson for life.

The work below is based on Walk 3 towards my installation for Pinpoint II later this year. I have so much still to do but I am starting to feel like I have the beginnings of something.

Walk 3

From home to studio.
Bingley to Saltaire.

Along the river, through the woods and by the canal.

New green leaves, yellow buds and pottery shards.

An elderly man told me about finding stickleback in the slow water between river and spring 'when we were younger' and told me about the big round marsh marigolds further along the path.

Trying to make decisions about my method for this project. Should I make while ideas are still fresh or wait til colours have developed and memory chrystalised?

Remembering a recent BBC Horizon program about how we make decisions... on balance I will probably make my decisions on instinct anyway and just spend ages trying to rationalise it. 

Just do what feels right.

Walk 2

Past Roo's house and Chestnuts. Following the silvered path to Nanfans Wood.
Muntjac by the chalk pits.
