Yesterday was supposed to be photo an hour day. I started well enough but then totally forgot. So I’ve rethought it for July and hopefully this week I’m going to do a portrait an hour for a day instead. Let’s see how it goes, it might not work out they way it looks in my head but it should be interesting at least. I’ll be at work so I won’t have ages to spend on each shot either, it’ll have to be quick and painless for my sitters too. I’ll let you know how it goes, it’s fun to experiment!
It was lovely and sunny when I woke up yesterday, I had breakfast in the garden and noticed these guys. I’m pretty sure they’re called cottage lillies but I can’t find anything online that matches them. Whatever they are, they’re everywhere in my granny’s yard at home. Every summer the place is covered in them, and I love that they’re here too to give me a little bit of my granny and home in my new home.Of course it started to rain then… Heavy rain, Ireland in July rain. I put on my manual focus and tried to take some raindrop shots, I like this one. We went to do a little shopping, trying to get our house ready for winter and no better time than summer. So we headed for the car park and I keep my manual focus on. I don’t think that family saw me snapping them, I imagine they were too busy watching little miss pink jacket. And shopping for home meant spying my perfect camera bag and just having to buy it. Look at that yellow, just look at it! And it’s a perfect fit for my Haven camera bag and it’s YELLOW! I don’t worry that I’m becoming obsessed, I’ve already made peace with the fact that I am. I can’t just look once at anything yellow anymore and I’m not so sure it’s a bad thing, how can anyone have too much yellow in their life? See you soon with my weekday work portraits, hopefully.
