This morning I told Sweetheart I had no idea what to take with me, photographically speaking, on our holiday. Yes, in September we are going for a week to Arromanches, Normandy. Nothing World War II related, simply a destination France.
I wish I could take her somewhere exotic, something that involves a plane. Sweetheart has never flown (I am not a great fan of planes) For the moment though her kids define her time and future so we keep things in a safe distance.
For quick and dirty work I’ll take a digital camera. Maybe the Nikon D300 so I’ll have also the F100 and F90 with me as they use the same lenses.
I would love to make some analogue long exposure shots. But then I think, hell, everybody is doing that today.
The Volker Birkes, Henki Koentjoros, Gittan Beheydts, Hiro Sugimotos and Michael Kennas of this world are creating astonishing long time exposures.
What do I have to add to the genre?
Fact is I have no idea what to do next.
I feel, creatively speaking, lost.
