Having an ongoing photo project is good, as it helps seeing things around us with a different perspective, noticing details usually overlooked in our day-to-day life.
My ongoing project is about the changes in nature and sky on my way to work with my bicycle. It began in July 2016, around the time I started a new job in Cambridge.
Photos are taken with a mobile phone and are uploaded to the website at the end of each season. My intention is to finish it by July 2017, but I don’t feel so enthusiastic about it as I have been until the end of last year.
I still very much appreciate the wonderful landscapes around the river Cam, the fresh air and freedom of commuting without using public transport. Most of the times though, I just enjoy the panorama without taking any picture.
The truth is, I’m in a photography rut.
To try to get out of it, I’m bringing the camera with me at work. This alone doesn’t help though, as I end up taking the same pictures over and over again.
So today I equipped my camera with a delightful Helios-44M lens, pointed it to the small things in my garden, and saw beautiful colours.
