January, to be honest, is not the busiest month of the year for either portrait or wedding photography. Nor is it a great month for getting out and doing some photography coaching … it’s just not that kind of month.
However it is a good time to sort out a few things to do with personal projects and for me time to contemplate something that has been on my mind for some time. I’m looking forward to publishing a small book, with the working title of ‘Aberdeen Journal’ featuring some of my black and white photographs of ordinary things in and around the streets of Aberdeen.
Not really exhibition pieces, nothing spectacular either, just little personal insights into the everyday life in city and its people without comment. At this time most of these things are commonplace but I have a vision that in 50 of 60 years time people might look back and say, ‘do your remember it like that?’ For now these are just sketches of an idea and I thought that now, January 2014, would be a good time to share some of them. Feel free to add your own captions.
