A photographer who is more experienced than I recently told me to 'photograph with intent'. Good advice, but last Monday I set out on a bike ride and did not intend to photograph anything at all, just get some exercise and burn off some Easter calories. No camera was in my backpack, but I did have my mobile phone.
I set off on a well worn route to the local lakes. It's a track I had ridden often but never so early in the morning and it was such a lovely morning after a cool and rainy night. Fog was rising along the river and cobwebs were adorning the trees with glittering dew like jewels. I took these shots with my mobile phone and wished of course, that I had a 'real' camera..
I shot this while I was sitting on a timber bridge having fruit and water for breakfast, then turned around and cycled home feeling quite sweaty and virtuous.
The next time when the conditions are right I'll take the camera and hope for perfect light and crystal cobwebs. In the meantime I guess I'll link to James' Weekend Reflections :)
Have a good weekend,
