If you haven’t been here before, the wednesday experiment is a regular feature where I explore the random, spontaneous, and purely artistic side of my personal photography practice. I try not to let it be about the finished product, rather about the process. It is about challenging myself as a photographer, regardless of the outcome.
ok I realise I should probably call this the “thursday experiment”… or perhaps I should have called it just “the experiment” to accommodate my rather loose definition of wednesday… However I did actually shoot these yesterday (wednesday) so I am still feeling justified in calling it “the wednesday experiment” … at least for another week.
Now that I am a couple of months in to this little project, I have noticed a couple of things –
1) every week, almost without fail, I have a panic attack and wonder what the hell I could possibly find to photograph.
2) every week so far with out fail, I have found something new and interesting to photograph
3) I have started to look at most objects and scenes in my immediate surrounds in terms of a possible photo. I used to do this years ago when photography was just a hobby.
So this is all very cool. I’m happy.
This week I give you ” a couple of things I’ve seen on my morning run”
pretty flowers (of which I shall post more of next week)
and some pretty weeds…
and YAY! it’s Jacaranda time in Brisbane!
Sometimes I think Jacaranda season is as close as we get to an autumn in Brisbane (even though it happens in spring)
Like a change of season in southern states, the familiar landscapes suddenly burst with colour…
the Jacaranda blossoms mark the passing of time for me… which is always a little bitter sweet.
Another cool tree around these parts is the Frangipani. It’s a pretty ugly tree over winter, but right now if you look around you’ll find they are in the middle of a pretty cool transformation that will visually confirm the summertime very very soon.
Happy Thursday to you
