This is an image I created a couple of months ago, but at the time it didn’t pass my high ‘quality control’ standards, not quite coming together in the way that I envisioned, and was in any case feeling too down about my work to believe that it had any potential whatsoever. Today decided that I really must have a go at ‘doing a photo’ as it’s been such a long time, but it’s been really hard – I’ve looked through the volume of unprocessed RAW files patiently waiting on my hard drive, and feel miserably that I am lacking the necessary creativity to produce anything new from scratch. Therefore I re-visited the above image, made a few adjustments to it, and whilst I’m still not fully happy with the end result it is at least a new picture which equals a new and long overdue blog post, and hopefully will spur me on to do other photographs in time.
This is the padded cell at West Park Asylum, merged with a dead Jackdaw that I found strung up under the eaves of a country barn. Not the brightest of subjects I fear, but then I am not in the brightest place ….
