There’s this photo challenge running around to post one black & white picture a day, depicting your life, with no people and no explanations. I got tagged by a friend but, I’d already read the superbly subversive attitude to the challenge taken by Ally Bean and thus inspired, I decided to accept the challenge but to do it my way.
My photos were taken over a period of days, although not seven. They all depict my everyday life as it varies between weekdays and weekends. Being a home-worker, my weekday life revolves round where I live, whereas my weekends tend to revolve around the weather and photo opportunities, however far-flung. I think these photos depict my current life pretty well …
I spend a fair bit of time at my keyboard, and my days are powered by tea, so this seems like a good place to start. And I’ve long been a fan of Emma Bridgewater.
This is where my neighbour sits and reads his newspaper – on more clement days than this one was … obviously.
On Sunday we went to this lake which had been crowded with birds during the week, but the fishermen had scared them away. So, I took a picture of them instead.
Scared away everything, apart from this ‘ere swan that is.
Then on to Littlehampton, where there’s this thing called the Longest Bench project. It weaves and winds it’s way along the seafront, with a few interesting twists & turns along the way.
Back home and taken in my car park. Photography, like much else in life, is all a matter of perspective.
I missed out Saturday. It was a rainy day, so we stayed in. I seem to have a good selection of gin … And that seems like a good way to end.
