#AP17 (Autumn Projeck 2017)

Posted on September 20, 2017


Use hashtag #AP17, the Autumn Projeck – for all people on Planet Earth who take still photographs. Capture that moment and post it on yer blog or instagram using the hashtag #AP17 and the rest of the community will be able to find you. Relax, it’s only for fun, all welcome, even yer Mum. And yer face.

My Story: I’m a North Devon based photohog, I used to work for a surf mag and (reluctantly) do a few weddings. I’m now a gardener and love the outdoors, my current photography direction/passion could be described dirty landscape but I love the challenge of taking ‘pictures that say something’ of almost anything… (except cats). Recently I’ve lost my mojo a bit, I haven’t posted much for various personal reasons, but the terrible end-of-summer weather has to take some of the blame.

So, join me in the search for some confidence and energy; the only way back is to take more photos. Full stop. Stop the malaise, move on, forward,  onward, take more photos, #takemorephotos

Suggested autumnal themes; changing trees, decay, rutting stags, wind, clouds, dark evenings, bonfires, migrating birds, hats, rain & of course the on-going theme known as Fence Friday #fencefriday

If you are on a laptop at work or tablet at home, click on it and make it big – please, it’s the way the photograph was meant to be viewed.

Starting in familiar surroundings at home: Doctors Steps, sunset. (Yesterday was better apparently).

23rd Sept. Spent the weekend in Newquay, Cornwall for the English Interclubs. Congratulations to the TR7 crew for steaming it again (for their third consecutive victory) and also congratulations to the Woolacombe womens team who won their category, whoop whoop! Here’s a pic of Alex Townsend surfing for Croyde SC and enjoying the warm up on Saturday morning, before the event had started, taken on Fuji XT-2 with 400mm (jpeg straight outa cam ….ption.)

Just spent the weekend in Cornwall at the BUCS surfing champs (put some stuff up on Insta –  follow me esterspears) and now sorting through my #Lundy pix. I really love this one. View from the landing jetty towards North Devon. “Leave all your shit behind and get back to basics on an island without internet and even phone signal & electricity, if you tread the wild path.”
