This is going to be another short post. Becoming a more regular thing that these posts are brief. I’ve found it’s difficult to create a work/photography/blog balance recently, an issue I never thought I’d have. I mean I’m glad I have that issue now going from being unemployed for so long to now busy busy busy. It is difficult to find the motivation to create new blog posts and even go out to take some pictures. This is something I’ll just have to work on, somehow.
I’m thinking of getting a diary or something again to write down ideas when I’m out and about, so that I can do them at a later stage. My memory is awful so I guess that would help in the long run. I also need to redo parts of this site, to show more of a gallery of my work, and to also set up this online store I’ve mentioned so many times.
I honestly wish I could step back from things, not be a perfectionist and just do them. That’s not in my nature though, if I’m to do something I need it done exactly how I see it in my head. This has always been a problem to me, photography related or in life in general. I like to make things difficult for myself apparently. My brain never fully switches off there are always little niggles going on, eating away at any potential positive thought I have. Very annoying.
Having an mind that doesn’t relax is actually very draining. I am always tired. Obviously that doesn’t help my mental health or the will to do anything. I guess it’ll get better over time, right?
Again, I’m going to end on some shots from the other week, at the Conwy Feast. Quite happy with how my attempt at some street photography turned out. I’m off to see the River of Light fireworks later in New Brighton, so here’s hoping I can get some half-decent shots there…
