Choices and decisions. This is the whole point of life – we all make choices whether we want to or not – our lives are resplendent in them and the we have to learn to live with the results. One of the decisions I have had to make is about my 2013 year book – just what images should I use?
I have a pile of sketch books, paintings and other artistic endeavour’s I made during 2013 just waiting to sift through to make the best representation as to what I was creating in 2013. All well and good but any image I capture of the analogue images will by definition be an image I would have created in 2014 – especially as I was will no doubt post produce the image to meet my current tastes. Just how do I get around this? Well the decision I have made is to just use digital images of analogue work I made in 2013. This will restrict the work that I could include but at least each of the images will have actually been made in 2013. It, however, has the bonus of saving a lot of time and effort as I will only have to choose from just over 500 images – far more manageable.
This image demonstrates what I am talking about. Both of the images were created in 2013 yet I have chosen combine them in 2014. I have also post produced them as well so this images is a 2014 image and reflects how I felt this evening about the combination. They were not made to be combined and I only decided to combine them as a result of looking at my 2013 images this evening. Choices and Decisions made in 2014.
