As I have the luxury of a long weekend, I’ve been able pick the camera up again. I’ve visited these catkins before. In December they were tightly closed, but now they are starting to open up. Spring is on the way.

Week 2, PAW, Brighton and Hove Camera Club
After 388 days of putting a camera to my eye and creating an image, the break had to come. Since completing my 365 I’ve been torn between carrying on (using a camera daily has become like brushing one’s teeth, a daily routine), or giving myself and creativity a well-earned rest.
Yesterday was the day I chose to make the break. It wasn’t done because I forgot, I was thinking about capturing an image on and off through the day. Yesterday other things took my time and energy, there was none left to be creative with. Over the previous few days I’ve just stuck my camera at anything that looked vaguely interesting in order to capture something. I haven’t been happy with any of the results.
So today is a new day. I’ve captured something that goes someway towards creative. The pressure has gone. Or has it? I’ve signed up to a Photo a Week (PAW) project with my local camera club. I want to keep my hand in, but develop my skills along the way.
