Looking through some electronically stored photos from earlier this year I was thinking how pleasant it was previously to have more physical photos to hand. I have been quite prudent in recent years as we live in a world where we take photos everyday with our smartphones, tablets, etc. If we printed and displayed them all we would be buried shoulder deep in pictures and the planet would be suffering. I am the first to admit I am not a perfect photographer by a long shot. I envy those who take great photos but continue in my own haphazard ways.
Take this beautiful sculpture admired at a racecourse in Deauville, Normandy, France this August. I took a couple of snaps (one of which in fact only showed half the artist’s details).
I do not do it justice but thanks to the internet I have now admired more of Nic Fiddian-Green’s work from afar. I hope by showing my poor photos here someone else may enjoy it too.
I have also been digging out old wedding photos and family snaps. It is truly precious to have at least many of those to reminisce over, to see family resemblances and to talk about those we love who aren’t with us anymore. I shall endeavour to print out a few more photos as the years proceed. I would hate them all to be lost on electronic systems that become out of date and inaccessible. Happy snapping to all!
