After a couple of rounds with some deep discussions about the nature of photography and what is photography, it’s time for a little more leisurely post, I think. More photos and less words. But before that I want to thank all you who participated in the discussion and by that added more conscious substance to the knowledge of photography. Maybe the understanding of photography isn’t necessarily any clearer or more sharply defined but through a discussion like this we all learn more and broaden our awareness. Even if there are differences in points of view. We certainly don’t all agree with each other, but that is just another forte of the discussion. As long as we keep our minds open and are willing to listen to different arguments, we will further expand our perspective – even if we still don’t agree at the end of the day.
Enough of that. Summer is closing down on us on the Northern Hemisphere. As a matter of fact we have just passed solstice, which for me really initiates the summer, even though solstice in terms of Earth’s orbit around the sun represents midsummer and not the beginning. But days are gonna get warmer and sun is going to spread its light through long days and evenings for the next couple of months, even if those days are already starting to shortening by now. Summer means holiday for many of us, and over a couple of posts the coming weeks I plan to post tips and ideas for both equipment to bring along wherever you may go as well how to capture the essence of those holidays. Stay in tune.
Until then I have posted some images taken last week while kayaking in the waters around Seattle. The trip marked the opening of the kayak season for me – and I hope to be exploring waters and lakes all over in the next couple of months. For those of you who are interested in the technical side of things, the photos were taken with a camera in underwater housing and then processed with the Instagram app.
