Between the trash and the print, I have cleared 2012-2014 archives from my computer. In retrospect, and with a more experienced eye, I was tempted to erase most of these early years of photography but instead have printed out a selection, as well as photobooking some. It’s not just sentimental nostalgia for I believe the ingénue has a fresh way of seeing things which I would like to retain – and just add a heap more technical expertise. It’s also interesting to see what catches the eye and if and how that has changed.
This slideshow collection is a sample of some of the images I bothered to have printed, However, I regret not choosing premium paper as even though they are not very special photos, the thinner print paper makes them seem even poorer!
And here are the ones I put together in a photobook.
I have future plans to print a collection of the Ricoh’s text mode images – a sort of stencil effect I’ve not been able to replicate with the Panasonic Lumix G6.
And I want to print a series of my favourite wreck which I like to photograph whenever I’m back in Suffolk.
To sum it all up this injury period has given me the time, space and impetus to clear the hard drive and unload a lot of image dross. In future I shall do this much more often.
