JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 12.4.21
December promise you gave unto me
December whispers of treachery
December clouds are now covering me
December songs no longer I sing
~ December, Collective Soul
There’s something about repetition.
I’ve been doing basically the same two-mile run (or walk) loop for the last few weeks. I can do other loops but I just like this one.
It takes me down a multi-use path by my place, and then through the woods if I want.
I’ve watched the landscape change from the the late summer to the fall to how.
You, too, can see the change if you’ve been looking at the collages these recaps start with.
Simples shots from my phone, but they allow me to archive what I’m seeing.
And I see something new, or different, everytime I follow the route.
Or, more likely, I’m seeing the same thing differently.
I’m hoping this is training my camera eye.
Maybe it is.
I recently did a portrait shoot with another photographer who’s very talented. She doesn’t shoot many portraits so she feels she learns from watching me, and I hear.
When we shared our images, she said she liked how I could find new poses and situations for the subject.
I feel like these rambles help me to see new things. Even in common, or often-seen, setting.
Maybe consistency is… good.
This Week’s Links:
What I’m Reading This Week: Started in on On Her Majesty’s Secret Service after finding it in a Little Free Library in Pennsylvania. Never read Ian Fleming/Bond before. I also started, on Kindle, What Child Is This by Rhys, Bowen, a Christmas tale set in WWII London.
What I Watched This Week: Trying to get through Get Back, the documentary about the Beatles. It’s been a chore. I’m not the biggest Beatles fan, this is a slog.
What I Also Watched: The Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame ceremonies on HBO. Carole King. LL Cool J. Jay-Z. Foo Fighters. The Go-Go’s. Paul McCartney. It was awesome.
From UN of Photography: Where is the Next Level of Photography? Have we seen it?
From Colossal: Jane Goodall, Photographers join forces for a print sale to protect the environment.
From Joe McNally: Cornall Dreaming
Watch: Via Sean Tuck, the amazing dog photography of Ben Burfitt (this kinda plays into what I talked about above.)
Finally…Omicron. Another variant. I’m tired, we’re all tired. Please do the best you to help stop spreading the coronavirus. Get vaxxed. I’m triple jabbed now. Got my booster on Friday. I want to be able to see my mom and older relatives and friends this holiday without issue. I want to watch live music and shoot bands with protection for myself and others. I trust the science. If you won’t get vaxxed, I don’t understand why. But at least mask up. And if that’s too much trouble, I don’t know what to tell you about you as a person. Good luck.
