It’s been a while since I posted a photo on the blog but I am planning to start posting again more often.  This is a shot taken at Tantallon Castle in Scotland looking out to sea.  The island across to the right is called the Bass Rock.  It has an interesting history which you can read about here.

I shot the photo on my iPhone 5s and also edited on the phone too.  I am also thinking about some posts about the apps and processes I use.  Hope you like the photo.  Also going to re-jig my Flickr and 500px streams.

Intermission.

After thinking about it a lot I have decided to take the blog in a slightly different direction. I am still going to post photos but not necessarily every day.

Over the course of Project 365 I have taken literally thousands of photos some of which I really like and some which I feel are not as good. Project 365 has begun to feel restrictive as on some days I have taken more than one photo which I like, and it has been difficult to select one shot. On other days, when the shots are not so great, I have to post a shot which I may not necessarily be really happy with, and often is not as good as some of the shots that I rejected on previous days.

Thinking back to 1 December 2013, the goal of starting my Project 365 blog was to challenge me to continually learn and improve my photography rather than to restrict it; so I have decided that going forward I will only post shots that I am happy with rather than posting a single photo every day. I still plan to post regularly and I hope you will keep following as it means a lot.

Colour street photography.

Normally I post process most of my shots in black and white but lately have been drawn to trying colour shots. I still feel that my black and white shots are stronger but there is definitely a different feel to colour shots.
