Perthpective

This series is mostly taken straight out of my Instagram feed but it is an opportunity to see the photographs at a larger format. 

Perthpective is made up of all those times I stop during my day to take a photograph of my direct surroundings. I bought a small camera a couple years back to force myself to carry it around as much as I can (I still forget it many times and miss out on some nice shots). I have come to thoroughly enjoy this process and its outcome, possibly more so than my other work sometime. I hope to keep up the discipline of taking photographs and sharing them online. I have started a short essay titled arguing that photography made me a better person, and that Instagram made me a better photographer, but that the logical conclusion to be drawn from these two premises does not follow. May be I will finish it one day and post it here ;-)

I wish to thank my wife and son whom, even though their walks are continually interrupted, have been surprisingly understanding of my curious and time-consuming habit. ​
