New Year

Jan 02, 2016

So it’s a new year. Here is a shot from the Yarra River looking back at the city. This is another image I wanted to re-do as I felt I stuffed it up so badly last time.

So, I believe that 2016 is going to be a horrid year. I see all these posts about having a happy new year when I know that 2016 may be the worst year I ever face. Actually I’ve been feeling down for a while now but at least I’ve finally moved to my own new house in 2015 and saw my sister get married. Of course she’ll be the last in the family to wed as I am certain by now that my time will never come. I simply have nothing to offer the opposite gender and I’m quite ugly which never helps. It really is the case that I never want to be in front of the camera. I want to photograph beauty, perhaps to make up for the lack of it in my own life. I am not sure why I mention this stuff only now when I’ve been feeling this way for so long. Maybe it’s the whole new year thing. I want to create goals for this year. Maybe to explore this side of myself in my photography. Make my images darker and morbid to reflect my own soul. I do see some new photographic opportunities as at times I wouldn’t head out to capture images as I needed to be somewhere at a certain time. This year I am my own boss and my own island.
I have a new design for the front page that has been mostly done for a while now. That shall be released soon. I have a goal to print more of my own art on my walls. I have already printed a 66 inch version of Uluru that I took a few months ago. This may be the only thing that I’ll enjoy about 2016.
