A walk in the park showed up someone’s hard work and dreams this week – den building….
Many a fun afternoon spent building dens as a kid – and again years later, as a parent. I always love the fact this is all generated from a happy place – from imagination and just for the fun of it. Fond memories from childhood are still vivid – playing in the ‘houseboat’ dens we made at school and others in the garden and woods near home, when out of school.
I remember a sense of freedom which I am sad to say I am not sure our kids achieve anymore – an aspect of dreams and reality.
I still have to decide my subject for the latest photography course project – Dream and Reality.
I was contemplating a more fine art route for this project, with compositing of images within photoshop to create the end result but I am finding myself veering away from this – wanting to create more ‘in-camera’ and define a narrative through a set of images with more resonance rather than fantasy, if that makes sense.
