Following up from my past Arthur’s Seat post I trundled around the hill a second morning and under snowy conditions too.
I was armed with the Koakamatic, a GF1 and my iPhone running the Thirty Six app.
The weather was cold, the light very low and blue so I let rip with the flash and slow shutter speeds.
The GF1 saw the most action but the Kodamatic made maybe 1 or 2 frames, still to be developed, and the iPhone a couple more.
Not all were worth showing but I uploaded a few that, to me, I found interesting.
It’s hard to really explain why I find them interesting but a comment from Booji Wooji Man, a Flickr user I’ve been following recently, might explain my angle; I have a background in painting.
I may have mentioned that before or even blogged about it but sometimes when someone else says it it sinks in more.
Maybe my eternal non-academic interest in the abstract expressionists impacts heavily on what I ‘visually’ like or what makes me feel more complete.
… that almost entirely unconscious feeling I get that’s triggered by a collection of splattered colours and shapes, it could almost be described as irrational.
I mean just look at this stuff.
I recommend everyone head over to Mark Harden’s Artchive website for loads of great content, I’ve been browsing it for years.
I must donate something to help keep it going.
