A week of snow and I watched the photo opportunities melting and played guitar. We had another bout last night but the tragic kind that turns to slush almost as soon as it arrives. Finally as the temperature has risen slightly I decide to visit that distant landscape that always draws me back – the garden. The old tree is doing good work in the fireplace but I found some new things to turn my eye to. Finished off a roll of B&W as well, so I might well squeeze out another blog in a few days.
I used my trusty D300 and jack of all trades 18-200mm. It vignettes distorts and has zoom creep so fits well with my casual attitude to digital photography. Messed about with them in Lightroom 2.6 finding a “Direct Positive” preset that I liked. Digital is so beautifully easy but I’m looking forward to mooching in the darkroom later when I process the two rolls of HP5. Newcastle v Plymouth Argyle on the radio and the stink of fix ….it’s a kind of heaven.
