This photo is really poor.

I like the idea, I like the reflection.

I dislike the noise, I dislike the edit.

I like the positioning of my hands, I like the focus.

I dislike the taste of warm soya milk, I dislike the image.


I have been stupidly tired all day and didn’t put much effort into my 365. Well I didn’t but did. The fact I was lazy and didn’t try setting up any lighting other than my window meant I took loads of test shots to get the white balance and exposure right (which I didn’t even get) meant sliding back and forth across the floor. Major effort. So I probably caused myself more effort and a crap photo for the sake of being lazy. Cause I had such little light, the photos got noise, and its not the noise that looks good. It looks even worse on flickr for some reason. BOO.


I had this idea in my head for a while, was inspired by something I saw on explore which I can’t find now. It was one of those “a year ago today” ones. Basically it was just someones head on a wooden floor. I started to think the idea wasn’t going to work so I’d kind of written it off in my head before I even started. Bad habit. Already thinking the same of tomorrows idea. BOO.
