These are part of a study of a 14-year old girl, done my my daughter. I like the first two because they’re in a playground, so there’s this coming-of-age feel to them, with one foot in both child and adult worlds. The first one is one I’d have been proud to take myself. The second could only have been taken by another teenage girl without being creepy, I think.
As a confirmed denizen of the small hours of the morning – an early field trip to the city seemed quite reasonable. I’ll photograph the sunrise from Queen Anne Hill – tunes, car, coffee, camera and tri-pod – off I went.
Now, I realize I shoot with a Lumix point and shoot, have limited patience for technically fiddly things, and don’t own a copy of Photoshop – but that doesn’t stop me from imagining fantastic photos.
Despite my best intentions the results were neither here nor there. I was going to consign this outing to the hard drive, but I’m going to share it anyway. This blog is about photography – it’s not always perfect. I take pictures for fun – so join me in poking some fun at myself.
