Day 1

It's overcast and windy today, and the light's not very good for outdoor shots, so I decided to kick things off with an indoor shot using natural light. Not having a tripod, I had to use a fast film speed to prevent motion blur, but I think the extra graininess suits the subject well. 

It was only when I was finishing up processing the image that I realised how appropriate the subject is for the first image in this, my year-long journey of photographic discovery -- he's Ganesha, the Hindu elephant god, remover of obstacles. 


  1. Helen good luck!! I must admit there are some days I want to give it up - but I HATE to not finish something I started!!
    It's a challenge for sure.

  2. Hi Laura, thanks for commenting, and thanks for following, too! I'm going to need all the luck I can get to get through this!
