52 x 2 Journal

I can’t believe that it’s been 6 months since by last blog post. Where has this time gone I wonder, I’ll not leave it so long next time.

Ok, so my excuse is that I’m doing a 52 x 2 in a journal, I think that that’s the limit for me and putting words down on paper (or online). For the uninitiated 52 x 2 means I’m taking 2 images a week for 52 weeks, printing them and sticking them in a photo journal and writing a little story about the image. One image needs to be black and white (mono) and the other in colour. After I’ve selected my two images of the week I then take a photo with my iPhone.  Editing is carried out in Snapseed and then posted on Instagram.

Coming up with the idea of starting this 52 x 2 journal came to me just before the new year.  I had purchased the journal months before but put it aside as too hard, then as happens around New Year and “New Year Resolution” time I had the bright idea of what I was going to do with this neat little photo book.  The main purpose was to help me polish up on my writing skills, which have just disappeared over the years. I’m often a couple of weeks behind in the writing department, which just goes to show that it’s not one of my favourite pastimes. I’ll keep plugging away at it though.

Here’s a couple of weeks to give you an idea.
