|from my archives; December 2011|
As mentioned earlier this week, I love the transition from one season to another. I love the colors and crisp air that autumn brings. I love a hearty slow cooked stew and a rich red wine. We are slowly feeling the change here Bergen and in the northern hemisphere in general. However I do not like that days are getting shorter and the increasing lack of light. Light is my muse. Darkness is cozy, but it normally does not inspire me to photograph. I will try to change this with a little photo project. I have loaded my Minolta SRT 101 with one of my favorite films, Kodak Portra 400. Every morning - before 9 am - I will take a photo, starting tomorrow. I'm excited to see how the morning light will change during those 30-something days that the project will last. And I'm looking forward to shooting with the Minolta again - it has been a while.
