Off the beaten track

‘Off the beaten track’

Innocent or illicit?

Assumption is the mother of all f**k-ups.

Had a short wander around Hastings earlier, saw that the alley behind the Observer building was open. Snapped these two, then went in.

Around the corner I would bump into a fellow photography enthusiast I know from Twitter but had never met.

We had a nice chat then parted company. I still only know him by his Twitter handle.

Walked back round to leave and spotted the two lads from earlier and asked if I could take their picture.

The result is today’s Images not words shot.

 A good day.

‘Early start’

Here are two other pics taken yesterday at the same time as my ‘Images not Words’ shot. All three were taken from the same spot but feature slightly different main elements. Yesterday’s being the crow in flight (see below), one being the jogger and one that focuses on the sun bursting through the clouds. In the end I decided to choose the bird shot for the project as it gives as sense of being free.

Now I have to decide what to shoot today.

The past

‘The Past’

It’s said that history repeats itself.

It seems that way sometimes.

We are told that we should learn from history.

From our past mistakes.

And for a short time we do.

But mankind is fickle.

History repeats itself.

Doing my 366 project ‘Images not words’ is really pushing me to think about photography and art, to look for interesting things the whole day through. Yesterday was a good day and yielded handful of images I was quite pleased with. Alas, only one per day can go into the project, which forces me to think yet again about which would be the best to choose.

The rest I can upload as a normal blog post.

My brain hurts.
