Sunday morning is the perfect time to go for a walk, and if you have a dog there is no better place to let them off the leash and chase the birds.
I have fond childhood memories of going for long weekend walks with my own family on the local beach and dunes.
The beach is ever changing: Somedays it’s calm, others its crazy wild. Sands shift upwards and downwards of 2 metres, revealing and concealing. Storms eat away the land, and bring in flotsam from all over the world. Last weekend I found what looked like a transmission engine from a motor car. How does something like this get carried in the sea, and from where?
And of course, if you have a dog, there is nearly always a big of doggy socialising to be done.
One thing I really don’t like about digital photography is the way it renders greens. Having primarily used film for the past few years I love the way Kodak Portra ‘captures’ greens – plant life in particular, but maybe it’s also true for textiles, etc. The greens in digital files just don’t quite cut it when it comes to plant life. Yes, they are vibrant, bright, and saturated, but to my eyes, they look slightly unnatural.
So, I am always experimenting in Photoshop to try and emulate the film look. I think I may be closing in…. What do you think?
