I’ve had an egg timer image in mind for a while now. Our daughter has one which sits on her bench top, behind the cook top. I didn’t know she had one. I don’t have one, and for the time theme I thought it might be fun to find one and make an image using it to illustrate time. I talked about the idea with her and was surprised when she said, “Oh, I’ve got one of those”. It sits in a red frame, which matches other accessories she has in her kitchen. I borrowed it, but the slightly oblong frame meant that I needed to think a bit more about how to present an image, Capturing it solo didn’t fill my self imposed brief of making some composite images. So in the end I used the shape of the frame as inspiration, but transformed the shape to a square, to fit the other self imposed brief of making square images. Goodness. What about a simple life, eh? After setting up my tripod to make sure the framing was ok I then handheld the light. That meant the edges of the frame in each image reflected the light differently, but I quite like the variation. The next thing was to put it all together. Of course, because nothing is simple, I started with the last image I made, placing it top right, not the first, (what was I thinking?), which meant the whole sequence was in reverse. So I scrapped the lot and started again.
Each week I'll publish a new image as part of a joint Project 52, with my friend in the USA. We both make an image every week, and send them to each other. We are now in the 2nd year of this project. We find it challenging, stimulating and fun. Life should be fun.
