“Finding myself out of the gossip, I busied myself taking snapshots of everything in sight, enjoying my dislocation from events. Watching the miniaturized, reflected image […] swim prettily into focus in my viewfinder, I had the world exactly as I wanted it.”
Jonathan Raban, Arabia Through The Looking Glass, 1979

I like film. I like digital. I like expensive cameras. I like super-cheap charity shop cameras. I like the chemistry, the physics and the mathematics of photography. I like the art of it.
There’s a super-short learning curve to taking a photograph. There’s a super-long learning curve to developing a photographic style.
“Your first 10000 photographs are your worst.”
After several tens of thousands of photographs I may have a style emerging. But then I’m a slow learner.
