I give up. I’ve had these scans lying around on my computer for several months now and just couldn’t be arsed to finish off editing them. Why? Probably because they have been tricky to colour match. Some sets of snaps look consistent, are easy-peasy to work on, and I can’t wait to get them uploaded, but others I can gladly leave be and on occasions forget I had even started to prepare them. Hard graft? Stuff it!
Find and edit one favourite photo from each of the last 20 years! Come on boys and girls that would take me another 20 years to sort out! Anyway many of my early photos have been binned, and that reminds me I should be getting on with another cull before spring arrives. Why do I destroy old snaps? For one reason or another they are unusable so hanging on to them just takes up space. I may keep a couple for sentimental, historic, or even artistic reasons, but the great majority are worthless reminders of my lack of skill and ambition.
While rummaging through one of my backup hard drives I found these 2 contrasting models. In the old days I did an occasional movie shoot for other people of up-and-coming porn starlets. Before the action started I liked to take a few snaps with a compact camera for my own collection. The first set are just that, albeit rather poor snaps. The second set are from a housewife photo shoot, as I have indicated in the past, not one of my favourite subjects. Although the talent is completely different there is a common thread to both these sessions. The performances weren’t for me, I was just operating the camera.
I’ve never bothered making New Year’s resolutions and even if I did I would, like 99% of the people who do, fail to keep any of them for more than the first couple of weeks of January. The problem is I need something or someone to kickstart my year or I’m liable to end up dying in bed of boredom.
