pull and bear

As always, if you have questions, objections, worries or praise, and especially if you found your picture and want it removed, feel free to contact me. I will get back to you as soon as possible. You can also read my full disclaimer, if you are interested.

 

I have decided to mix things up a little. Yes, for real, these were actually taken on different days *gasp*!

Old lady pulling young lady. Don’t know where the bear is though.

Stretching at the ATM is rather odd.

Dog parallels. They were everywhere that day.

I’m not going to quote what Ezequiel’s comment was on that one …

Letting the dog sit in the middle of the pavement. And I’m a terrible walking companion. Almost made Ezequiel bump into the dog, because I needed to take a picture. Oops.

I hate clowns … too scary …!

I actually stopped to take a picture of the light on the trees on the other side of the street. The people walking picture turned out more interesting.

Taking the little doggy to the grocery shop. Couldn’t do that with a real one.

Perks of living by the sea. We had Dorada the other day and fresh gambas. So delicious! Only problem: Bones and shells.

Tones! This is one of these examples where I’d like an A2 print, because of the guy in the background telling off the little kid.

Apparently the kid finds the dog more exciting than the swing.

Twisty bendy.

Running forward, looking back. I hope this kid doesn’t do that sort of thing near street lights.

Tom & Jerry and Scooby Doo. Do they even run anymore? Isn’t that more for my generation?

Guy reading his phone in the background. I never really quite know whether I like the out of focus areas on my Olympus or not. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t.

Public toilet for everyone apparently.

After thinking about it for a while I realised that I need to accommodate my outrageously frequent output in a different manner. The way I write my blog has evolved over the years and naturally I have developed my blogging habits under different circumstances. By now it’s obvious that my way of blogging tends to create problems if I take a break from it to shoot more. At the moment my posts seem all over the place, because I have a backlog of digital and film pictures to post that were processed at different times. I don’t quite like it when the pictures I post become very disconnected from the place where I am at the moment. Occasionally it’s fine, but every other day is just too much for my liking.

When I started blogging a few years ago it was with a 365 project and I restricted myself to posting only one picture a day that had to also be taken on that day. Suffice it to say that this was hugely restricting and quite annoying sometimes. On some days you produce a lot of stuff worth showing, while on others the most interesting picture is one of your shoes, which you normally wouldn’t show to anyone. After the year was over I started posting more than one picture per day and had some stretches where I didn’t post anything at all, which felt much more natural. I often still went out shooting every day, but I wasn’t as religious about it as during my 365 project. Since then I’ve started to shoot on film as well, which is less immediate in processing and therefore will throw the “one post for all the pictures of the day” rule into chaos as well.

The other issue is that over the years I’ve actually improved. You wouldn’t think that this would create a problem, but instead of one, two or even five keepers I sometimes have many more, especially if I’m out for a while. Who wants to see 30 pictures or more a day, I wondered. Isn’t that too much?

So, over the years I’ve also accumulated quite a bit of stuff that I didn’t post at the time. Occasionally when I’m very busy shooting I also neglect posting pictures and just like now I have a huge backlog of stuff. At some point these usually just get abandoned, because I much rather like to post recent pictures and use the blog as a kind of diary. Maybe it’s not so bad to post a few more pictures a day though. After all, Dave from ShootTokyo used to do it for ages and he says that people actually liked it. So, from now on, don’t be surprised if you occasionally see rather long posts, sometimes from the same day, sometimes combining different days, when I’m posting older stuff. I’ll try to keep pictures taken at different places and with different gear separate for now, so that there won’t be too much visual discontinuity.
