NUMBER OF PHOTOS FOR SATURDAY | about 60
Today was a good day.
We went for a super long bike ride around town that included stops along the way for checking things out, for rest, and for lunch (and when I mean super long I mean we were away from home for 3.5 hours or so). I’m actually amazed that Simon made it the whole way – it crossed my mind more than once to call a friend to come pick us up. You’ll see a photo of him below when we got home and he laid down on the sidewalk and proceeded to literally fall asleep on the ground. Other than that adventure we did a lot of just hanging out.
A couple notes on self-portraits: I never did find my camera remote so I’ve just been setting my camera on chairs, counters, etc as I’ve gone about my week. My process is to find someplace or something to set the camera on, open up the lens (usually I go as wide as I can or at least 1/2 of that – my lens is a 24-70 and it can get most of a room in a shot), set the timer on, press the button, and get back in position. I then check it and if it’s decent I go with it. I wrote to someone in the comments yesterday that I’m not striving for perfect with these shots – I simply want a representation of what was. If it’s super out of focus I’ll try again, usually putting my hand out in front of the lens and pressing the button half-way down to get it to focus on the foreground and then pushing the button again to begin the timer.
ONE MORE DAY | You can do it. I can do it. And even if you are just seeing this now you could do it too – do it for one day or begin your own week.
Next week I’ll be sharing how I put my album together – incorporating the words and photos I’ve collected. In case you missed it a few weeks back, here’s my design plan.
Here’s a look at some shots from my Saturday:
