Thursday 8 December 2011: I hate blipping in the Winter
650/365: ... there, I've said it.
I hate it being so dark
I hate it being so wet
I hate it being so windy
I hate the feeling that your day is bookended by an ever-increasing gloom
I hate that it's so damned difficult to find any time in daylight to take a shot
I hate that taking shots in crap light is such hard work
I hate my grainy, rushed, desperation shots.
I hate blipping in the Winter.
I love photography. I love the light. I love colour. I love the feeling of freedom and space.
I hate bloody blipping in bloody Winter.
There. That's better. Got that out of my system.
So. Crappy photos until... *looks at watch*... Spring.
I also have a sore throat and a neck that's stiff and painful.
Bloody hate this time of year.
Wonder what it would be like to live in a photogenic place and have time to go for walks or get out during the daytime? Wonder what it would be like to have the freedom to find the light? Wonder what it would be to have the money to buy the toys to cope with less than perfect conditions? Wonder what it would be like not to feel that feeling of dread when you go to get money out because you don't know if there's any money there to be got?!
Am grumpy because I'm feeling shitty.
PS A year ago today I got offered the job I'm currently in
PPS The potential of now is better than it was before I got the job
PPPS But I still feel shitty.
