I have been tidying up photographs on my computer, clearing out some that I’m not going to use, and finding others that I’ll still want to work on. I liked this one, from Airthrey Loch early one morning in July: the path seems to be an invitation to get into the water… with the life saving equipment acting as a bit of a warning to not stray too far out!
Speaking of getting into the water: I’m excited by plans for tomorrow: very early in the morning I’m collecting a friend who has agreed to model for me, and we’re off to create a series of photographs at a nearby beach; I envisage this being a little narrative. She is doing all this in the knowledge that I’m expecting her to end up lying in the water… the North Sea in Scotland, even in August, is not where most of us would want to lie down, especially not just as dawn is breaking and the air temperature is still relatively low! So I’m excited but also a bit nervous, hoping that everything is going to go as planned and that my ideas will lead to at least passable results – I don’t want her to get wet and cold for nothing!!
