One/1

I have decided it is time for something new….a belated New Year decision!

A series entitled ‘One’. Each week I shall post an image containing just one individual in shot (this may morph as time goes on, and I might allow myself a single animal/object).

I had been giving some thought as to my photographic style, and whether there were any common themes running through my images over the years. I realised that I have frequently had reasonably deserted scenes, urban or otherwise, with just one individual in the frame, often fairly distant. Hence my idea for ‘One’. I have quite a number of these, possibly almost enough for a year’s worth of post, and I shall certainly continue..

To kick the series off, I am starting with one of my first, taken in the early 1980s during travels in Italy.  Seen in backstreet Venice early in the morning. Scanned from a slide, cropped, and enhanced with Nik Software….

  1. An excellent decision and theme. I often find myself wondering what it is I am trying to achieve through my photography as I will photograph anything and everything. I really ought to narrow down a style and perfect it! I look forward to following this series. 🙂

    • Thanks for your positive vibes, Jude! It’s almost been a leitmotif for so long, but I’ve only just recognised it… I’m encouraged by the number of ‘likes’ already. 🙂

  2. Very interesting Sue – there is something about the picture which definitely places it in the 1980s.

    • The film captures always look different, even when converted to digital, but perhaps there is a sense of time as well as place with the buildings…

  3. Susan! A wonderful idea and theme!!

    What a clever idea. It could lead you to some interesting places and photographs. 🙂

  5. Love the concept 🙂 I also prefer taking pictures ‘uncluttered’ by people.

  6. Nice work ( ONE) I have been struggling with the same issue. Keep going!

  7. Interesting idea! Fresh start – looking forward to more!

  8. Oh! I love the crumbling romance!

  9. Interesting concept. I look forward to seeing these.

    • Thanks, Draco…I think it could be an interesting journey! I want to try some distant shots, some moody/stylised images, some ‘character studies’. Hopefully, some of it will work out

  10. Great idea for a theme Sue. Isn’t it funny how this happens? I felt this way when I first realised that I have this obession with photographing windows and door frames, especially if they are old with peeling paint!

    This is a very evocative shot of an early morning Venice, love it. I look forward to seeing more of your new series – Sherri 🙂

  11. Good idea and great start, Sue. I agree with Jude 🙂
