Ready... Set...

This is the third week I've been aiming for a picture on the theme "childlike" and I'm really quite glad the other two didn't make it. Principally because in the first week, Kim convinced me to bend the rules and post a shot from our trip and in the second, she did the same. But also because the shots I got in both cases were a little weak. This idea came from nowhere (or whatever that strange creative space is) and didn't look anything like this in my head but when these conditions presented themselves, I dashed out of my in-laws house and this is what I got.

 

Thanks to Dan & Ty for their assistance during the shoot, ultimately I preferred this one, but your shot will come out in the coming weeks. Thanks also (as ever) to Kim for her help in processing this. I hope this is sufficiently in the middle.

 

I feel like this is the beginning of the end of this project, only 11 weeks to go and we have a number of themes that we have discussed that we still want/need to get in, but we have a few gaps so here's your final chance to offer suggestions or requests, anyone? Please?

 

Each week between Monday and Sunday I shoot a self-portrait. I post it the following Thursday. The idea is for me to learn and grow. So give me some critique, don't be shy - tell me what you really think! Thanks

 

PS I'm painfully aware there are a number of my contacts whose pictures I have not got to yet, I will, sorry, I haven't forgotten you...
