Today was a beautiful blue sky day, though very cold, and on my way back from Sunderland up the A19 I glimpsed Penshaw’s monument and thought that would look pretty cool in the ball, so took a diversion down the A183 and voila! Here it is. Was pleased no-one else was up there as it’s a popular place for people of youthfulness who don’t have heart attacks going up that hill, which I probably would. Have been up there a few years ago and it damned near killed me then!
I’ve posted some more film shots up on the Fragglefilm blog, this time of the beaches I go to still and show on here regularly, but back in 1995 when I lived down south and didn’t know I would eventually come to be a resident ‘oop North’. Anyway there’s a link HERE to see them. While I’ve been scanning and uploading them and doing the post it has been re-inforcing my thoughts on project/projects for next year. It’s nearly the end of my 366, and I have been and am enjoying it immensely, but don’t want to do the same thing again. I have used my FujiX-T1 for every shot this year, and next year I want to play with my other forms of taking pictures, and want to do more film photographs, both medium format and polaroids. I also want to make more use of the iPhone, which has some great little apps, and really want to get to grips with black & white, it’s been one of my favourite months of this year’s project. So that’s the way my mind is thinking, though I don’t know yet how I’ll organise it. One thing I have organised though is a separate blog for the black and white, I need to keep it separate from my usual stuff so it’s easy to see how I’m progressing without the distraction of colours, and this blog will go back to how was before, with fraggle reports and history stuff. I’ve done one post already to try and figure out the new place, which you can see HERE, and it’s already up there in the top menu. So something different for me to look forward to for next year. 🙂
