August - John Updike

The sprinkler twirls

The summer wanes

The pavement wears

Popsicle stains


The playground grass

Is worn to dust

The weary swings

Creak, creak with rust


The trees are bored

With being green

Some people leave

The local scene


And go to  seaside


And take off nearly

All their clothes


Day 215

Settings = F5.6 1/125 ISO 2000

Process = Edge of window as leading line. Expose to show glow of sunrise.

Inspiration = Harvey super excited on train to London, watching the sunrise.

Little soldier

Day 216

Settings = F1.8 1/250 ISO 220

Process = Banister as leading line, reflection in wood.

Inspiration = A shattered Harvey powering on like a trooper. Tired but taking it all in.


Day 227

Settings = F4.5 1/8000 ISO 1600

Process = Goalkeeper as focal point. Positioned with rule of Thirds. Team positioning seen in background out of focus.

Inspiration = Football tournament

I think I’m still in shock with life returning to normal and trying to fit it all in as well as all the things we’ve missed. My body aches, I’m tired all the time. I’m adjusting though … slowly. It means other priorities are starting to creep in and personal projects have to go on the back burner. I’m loving every moment of working with people again. Sharing stories and capturing memories. 

Get in touch if you would like to talk about creative ideas.

Cherish your yesterdays, dream your tomorrow's, and live your today
