Hidey Holes in the place where I rest my head
hold memories, to recall and to cherish
programmes of events and photographs
uniform pins of times gone by
Old cameras look on in awe as
24 stills turn to 48 turn to over a 100
as film turns to cartridge and to chip
how many memories are on the corner of my desk ?
Archives of old journals and diaries
now playing hide and seek
in the corner of a wardrobe space
On occasion, shown the light to read
And what of the tapes and videos
now boxed away ?
The machines can no longer play
Tape recorder occasionally used, video cassette – gathering dust
Salford 13th March 2018
Over the last few days i’ve been taking part in a photographic challenge
#challenge30 involved taking pictures with my trusty second hand Nikon DSLR camera on thirty subjects – each with their own unique title.
i particularly enjoyed taking photos from an abstract view, changing simple items into something else.
The pictures have been stored on a gallery on flickr’s website and you’ll find them here
This weeks photography class at BASIC in Salford, involved taking photographs through an object. The scenes were placed behind a Glass Ball and the pictures were shot through the ball.
The images obscured depending on the angle of the shots taken. The Miniature image captured through the sphere a copy of the picture behind it.
Scenes Captured in a Ball – The technique produced some lovely effects
The idea was you didn’t concentrate on the image behind it – just the image in the ball!
The session produced some great pictures, and i really enjoyed creating the images i did with my camera.
