Today would be my Mum's birthday I started my blog a year ago in celebration of her life and to honour what would be her 60th birthday today. I have done what I set out to do and I am so pleased. So to my beautiful Mummy whom I'm sure will know I have done this for her from where ever she is now I love you so much and you have inspired me to do this which has helped my photography skills in many ways.
Todays picture is of her clock which she loved and to show time is up on my blog. Now for a well deserved cup of earl grey tea on her birthday to honour her and her beautiful sister Diane as well.
I decided a while back that I wanted to start a 365 photography project Seeing others inspired me to take this step in photography, as i have been at university studying illustration the last three years but leaning more towards photography by the end of my degree and even doing my dissertation on documentary photography.
I wanted the starting day to be a day which meant something to me so I decided that today, the 16th June, which would have been my Mother's birthday who sadly passed away nearly 3 years ago, would be fitting. This project is in her memory and a gift to her.
The main photograph i have chosen today was taken in Central Park in New York city. At the moment I am on a 5 week holiday staying with my Aunty Parvaneh and Uncle Richard. I came here with my partner David and our daughter Rosina. The photography is of a small motor powered boat which people of all ages were sailing around a pond in the middle of the park. It is a peaceful photograph full of tranquility, hence the title. In the middle of the big city there is peace found by all in this wonderful park.
The two photographs below show the bulk of what I did today which was a photo-shoot, which I did for my Uncle Richard, photographing
the filming of a video being made for the Kickstarter website for his product Tricky notebooks. It was a long day but good experience
documenting a film being made.
