Some Clarification...

Yesterday, I talked about inspiration, and after an online encounter with a friend and reader, I realised that inspiration probably wasn't the best choice of words? I think perhaps MOTIVATIONS might be a better choice? These days, I make images to either 1. make prints from, 2. use online , or 3. use as tests, sketches or ideas for further exploration, [usually online].

When I plan on making prints, my approach varies, but often, I either use a kind of harvesting approach or have a very specific idea I'm exploring and shoot that. When I harvest it may take months or years for me to be ready 'see' for the image what it really is, which often then leads on to further image making. In quiet times like the height of summer [when the light is god awful], I often reflect back and look at older images made over the last 20 years and make discoveries which in turn could lead to, more discoveries or another show.

Online uses can be from as simple as a decorative image for a blog entry, or part of some of the ideas I'm dabbling with online, or for the sheer fun factor of it, and then there is a huge overlap with point number 3.

So what I meant was I guess that the location we stayed at for those 4 days, didn't fit into any of these 3 motivations. Of course that's NOT to say something won't come of the images I DID make some time down the track, so who knows....
