Taken Then Forgotten.
I find myself tonight sitting here with way to much time to think. Thinking about the last 3 years, the ups and the downs and about how i used to take a lot more photos than i generally do now, this bum’s me out a little bit, i mean people used to actually get a little pissed off at me sometimes for always having my camera there. But then those people often wanted to see the photos afterwoulds. It’s all good. The way i see it, is i cant wait to look back at all my photos in years to come and see how weird everything looks and how things and people might have changed. I have heaps of friends that shoot stunning film work that is amazing to look through on a rainy day, for example my friend Sophie, the photos she took from when we went traveling are unreal! Although she wont admit that, go have a look for yourselves by checking out her scans on Flickr www.flickr.com/photos/sophielewis/ I love film photography as much as the next person, its great to look at and always will be. But im personaly fed up of taking photos and then having them disappear into my seemingly endless hardrive never to be seen by anyone ever again, im not going to lie and pretend i take all my photos on a super radical vintage Polaroid or 120 film camera, and im not going to lie and pretend i wouldn’t love that, but the fact is i take pretty much all my photos on my digital camera, its ok though she treats me real good. Im going to start putting photos on here….in the hope that this will help put an end to my ever disappearing photos and hopefully encourage me to start taking more again. It would be great to see more of your photos to! So please do add to our mint magazine Flickr page which you can find here
In short this is kind of a new feature where im going to put up photos of things id rather not forget. Feel free to join in & get uploading to our Flickr page, or alternately you can email me directly email@example.com if you have any photos you’d rather not forget and i will feature them here.
