I had some obligations yesterday but because I had been working so much and the day off I did have last week was not very well spent, I decided to treat myself to a mini road trip. I’ve had a bad couple of months which was kind of distressing to me because I thought I had finally found the meaning and the path to self fulfilment. I was at a point where I felt that I didn’t need anybody to make me happy, that I created my own happiness. I’ve come to realise that happiness is elusive, it seems to evolve and needs to be reinvented occasionally and I need to do the same. Road trips help though and I’m thinking that won’t change. 😉
I had mentioned that I didn’t get many photos yesterday on my digital camera because they were mostly film shots (5 rolls) then I went to edit and I had at least 50 shots, so uh, hopefully when I get my film processed they won’t seem redundant, however, I have tried to take different shots with each camera. I tried color film in my medium format camera for the first time and I like how it has different dimensions than the 35mm causing me to have to change my technique for composition. So I had a system, and it probably looked ridiculous with me carrying around 3 cameras, but I was doing 120mm for color shots, 35mm for b&w, and my digital for wide angle shots, so hopefully they won’t all just be repeats.
