There are times in life when I despair. I see tragedy in the news and see how everyone is using too much plastic. I see how people are not kind to each other, or the world they exist in, and I just think ‘what is wrong with people?’.
However, I do not always feel this way, and it is often an art form which prevents me despairing.
Out and about in my beautiful city (I have lived in Brighton now roundabout for 10 years!) on Marathon day I was walking along the seafront and I took this picture:
I didn’t think much of it really, I really like the sea, and its complete vastness, so I took a picture. Then, when I started writing my previous blog post (If you haven’t read it, you know what to do) I thought more about making it into a collage. (Thanks blog!)
When looking at a photograph or setting and its collage potential, I think about these three things (and maybe they will help you too)
Today is Friday!
Today is a well deserved day off. Plus it’s another beautiful sunny day in Brighton. I have found this year more than ever the weather has affected my mood. Of course, other things do too, but if the weather is nice it is much easier to be outside. I can go to the park, go for a walk, take pictures, the list goes on.
