“In order to see birds it is necessary to become a part of the silence.”
― Robert Lynd

Another indoor photography post! I have an excuse this time. I’m housebound today whilst my car is in the body shop being repaired. On Monday morning whilst I was driving down the motorway to work, a large piece of concrete was thrown from a bridge down into the road. Luckily it missed the majority of my car, hitting the bumper and rendering a few scuffs and cracks. It could have been much worse, nevertheless I am still frustrated by the lack of attention from the police – the fact that the CCTV cameras there don’t actually record – and the bill that I’m left with at the end of it all. But I’m thankful!

Anyway, I sort of exhausted a lot of still life options this week as between work, Christmas preparations and visiting the gym at 6am (yes I know – crazy right?) – it has been a tad busy. There’s some dispute over when this challenge ends as it was a leap year/wasn’t a leap year or something – but I estimate that there are approximately two weeks left. It seems quite weird to be thinking in those terms, when just a few months ago I had endless days stretching before me.

A few have been asking if I’ll continue, and I’ve lightly broached the subject in a few previous blogs. I think the decision will come on the 1st of January. Regardless, don’t wander off yet – I’ll still be blogging, I just might give your inbox’s a few days rest in between entries!

“There is nothing worse than a brilliant image of a fuzzy concept.” -Ansel Adams

I thought that the darker evenings and awful weather would hamper my efforts in completing the photo a day challenge, but actually it’s the social calendar at this time of year that’s making it really restrictive in terms of getting photos!

However the end is in sight, and therefore I’m going to keep going whilst I can…today I photographed some lovely Christmas jars that I bought at a craft fair last month.

I played around with some actions in Photoshop, some may be fairly over the top, but I liked the effect and it’s a little different to the normal. Red ribbons lend themselves to soft lighting and vintage tones.
