Disappointed

Newer Older

I wondered how to call this shot and what to write underneath it. My mind is racing in three different direction and I cannot find the perfect photo for any of the three thoughts.
From one side I have the excitement for tonight public debate on Photographers' Rights and Obligations in the UK. The London Calling Photographers has succeeded in gathering the London Metropolitan Police (MET), the British Journal of Photography (BJP) and the British Press Photographers' Association (BPPA) to discuss about the recent development in the laws and in the Prime Minister feedbacks on the issue. The meeting is free and open to everybody, so if you are interested there are still few seats available: go on our website and signup on the wiki page. We have been featured in the Guardian, and some journalists will cover the event as well.
On another side I had the pleasure, yesterday evening, to attend an Event in the Apple Store. Stephen Fry held a speech on technology, and it had been really interesting. Unfortunately I was restrained by using one of my lenses because I seemed "too professional" and I was not accredited as press. The event was really good, but the photo did not turned out very well: I was a little too far and in the middle of the crown to capture good shots with the 50mm. Well, lesson learned!
Then there is a huge blow I received yesterday, watching the behavior of a man I trusted going so low in my scale of respectability that I have been almost dizzy for some minutes. Today the disappointment is surfacing, the incredulity is forming more clearly.

Disappointment, then, is the title of this photo. Disappointed by the general outcome, but pleased with the lessons I have learned once more. Disappointed as the girl I took a photo almost by mistake. Disappointed because more conscious.

Yes, We Can!

The mantra in my head, the disappointment in my mind and the strong urge to prove myself, to move forward. Where will this end?

    An excellent and intimate slice of life on frontlines of journalism advocacy - the personal, political and policy punditry from the inside. Five stars.
