I have been looking at some pictures that I took last year and have never got round to editing once they had been scanned. Some of them were worth working on and so I spent an afternoon looking through them.
I have been thinking that it is very easy to take pictures that have been taken many thousands, maybe millions, of times before. I should struggle to make my pictures as unique as is possible. I know that maybe it is a vain hope, but I will keep trying, whether this is taking photographs on film, trying to embrace their imperfection, or attempting to take photos from unusual angles and of unusual subjects. I think it is pretty futile trying to be original in photography. Or at least, so far, for me, it is.
