Around the house without a flash
It's been a very busy week, full of highs, lows, variable weather, dinner invitations and lots of travel. Sunday has been the first day of proper rest, a time to take stock and re-energise the batteries. So the morning started with a lie in listening to BBC World Service and a long walk with the dog over the back fields and nature reserve followed by a hearty brunch.
The afternoon was taken up with domestic chores and processing the photographs from the past few days. Amongst this was a conspiracy with my wife not to go out and do the food shopping, but, batten down the hatches, get the fire on, devise a lovely winter supper and make some flapjacks.
As Lesley was making supper I had a moment of boredom and decided to challenge myself by taking a few pictures with the camera, without the flash of various objects around the ground floor of the house, just to see if I could make mundane objects look interesting.
Did I succeed? Well, you will have to be the judge of that. Included in the photographs is an image of Lesley's father in uniform taken in 1945, a button from my jacket and another framed picture of Lesley's paternal grandmother You can clearly see the similarity. Whilst I enjoy taking images of various objects, I still come back to people. They are much more interesting and fascinating to observe and record. I'm looking forward to getting some more studio work done this week.
Lovely photos Art , my fave is the fireplace and roaring fire because the colours are so rich .
