I seem to be at one of those standpoints in my life. Everything is on hold. I begin to over-criticize myself as productivity dwindles.

Last week I have decided to do something new. Still life photography is not something that I had done before and I thought it could be quite interesting to try it out. So I bought me a sheet of glossy black perspex and spent one day trying to photograph water splashes and objects. I must say, I do enjoy it for the most part but with some objects, it can get quite tedious. Sometimes, you have to shoot for post production – and I don’t like that.
When I first started out with this blog I did not know how this will go. I didn’t know if I could keep it up and I never thought that it would help me to stay productive, pushing the ball towards my goals. I just knew that there is a story in this journey that I am undertaking and I hoped that there would be someone out there who would like to read about it.
It has now been a while since I left the city for either bushcraft or a photography trip. This is because I have decided to put my head down and do some more hours at my day job so that I could buy a motorcycle.
A little while ago, I had a dilemma. I was looking to go to Lake District for a 9-day photography trip and I did not know which lens I should go for. At the time, as I was digging through many forums, looking for options and writing them down in a list. The List contains most of the Full Frame Lenses available for Pentax K1 – both new and discontinued. Today I have decided to share this list with you all.
Last week I thought that it would be a good idea to pop out into my local zoo and take some pictures. I thought to challenge myself, to shoot animals looking like they are in the wild. Which meant no fences, people or man-made object in the shoots. A far more difficult task than I had anticipated.
