Starting the new photo year
We’re just over a week into the new year and I’ve taken my DSLR out once so far. I can’t say that I am happy with that amount of photography, but it just hasn’t felt that interesting to be out there with it yet. So it rests comfortably in its backpack for the time being. No doubt it’ll see plenty of action soon enough though...once the weather improves just a bit.
The photos in this post are from the beach at Ribersborg in Malmö on a pretty cold January morning, but before we got the recent dusting of snow. The winds were pretty fierce so my dad and I didn’t stay very long. It’s hard to operate a camera when your hands feel like they turn into icicles! We took a brief walk over to the dog park area nearby and saw a few little critters who weren’t bothered at all by the ice cold winds. They were too busy having a good time with their other four-legged friends, old and new.
On the Instagram 365 project
I am now on day 10 of my Instagram 365 project and I’ve updated the page here on the site with photos from the first week, with many more to come as the year progresses. I am pretty content with the photos so far, but it feels like I’ve not been experimental enough with the cell phone camera yet. It can handle much poorer lighting conditions than my previous phone could, so I am not as limited in what I can do with it. Hopefully as the year progresses I can explore that more! I’ve got 356 more opportunities to do so before December 31st, so that ought to be enough! :-)
