Organising and Simplifying

I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with my winter vacation when I thought about it at the end of December, but it looks like my time off is being spent editing and organising my photographs and putting the best on my new Flickr account. As of today, I now have one hundred and fifty-fifty photos online. If you’re curious, you can see them at https://www.flickr.com/photos/marcuspeddle. Part of my editing process is to add titles and tags to everything. I might want to find something someday, and maybe it will help visitors to Flickr looking for photos of Korea. Another part of the editing process is deleting anything that has no documentary, personal, or artistic value. There’s so much . . . .

Here are some slide film photos from January that I’ve just finished editing.

Nikon F6, Kodak E100 Film

This bicycle has been in front of my building’s entrance for a dog’s age. There’s a bicycle rack right next to the stairs, but I guess this bike and its flat tyre is too good for it.

Nikon F6, Kodak E100 Film

I have a number of photographs of this hand cart and paint shop. I think this is the first one on slide film. I did some adjusting in Lightroom to darken the brick and lighten up the blue cart.

While I was making a photo a middle-aged woman behind me said, “She’s very pretty, isn’t she? Hahaha.” Strange. The Lightroom adjustment history for this photo is as long as The Illiad.

Liquor Truck Parked Illegally at Bus Stop. Nikon F6, Kodak E100 Film

Despite overhead cameras and posted warnings, nobody minds parking illegally at bus stops. Turn on your hazard lights and the law no longer applies to you.

A nice, shiny building and a soon-to-be shiny building.

More to come in a week or so. If I find anything on the hard drive worth sharing . . . .
