Day Six: “Solitude”The state of being alone, or a lonely and uninhabited place.
I need to find the correct quote. A French explore/sailor wrote a book, years ago, where one part he talked about being alone. He said that, he felt more alone on the Metro in the Paris rush hour. Compared to being on his boat alone in the middle of the ocean.
This I can totally relate to. The more remote I am, the more I feel at peace, relaxed and funny enough feel like I’m with my friends. Like here walking all alone, ok Peli is with me, on the Farewell Spit on the South Island of NZ.
Photography: Developing Your Eye I
Today’s Tip: Pay attention to the placement of your subject. As you frame your shot, consider the Rule of Thirds, which is a great introductory lesson in composition. Divide your shot into thirds, both horizontally and vertically, so you get nine parts. Place your subject at the intersections of these lines (or along them) to create a dynamic, off-center composition.
If you suffer from Pteridophobia, you can’t really do much in New Zealand as the country is literally covered in ferns of all kinds. If you are a suffer I’m sorry to tell you that the next few photographs on this blog will not be your cup of tea.
Pteridophobia: An irrational or obsessive fear of ferns.
