Lockdown shmockdown

If you're like me then this lockdown hasn't really changed much of your day to day existence. I still go to work 5 days a week, still walk the dogs and go to the shop once or twice a week for the essentials.

One thing however that I cant do as much is take new photos, In a similar way to the first lockdown I'm finding myself struggling to find inspiration when it comes to new shots and there are only so many places I can reasonablly travel to for dog walks.

This has meant spending more time trying to photograph my garden which currently looks a little sorry for itself after the winter we have had / are still having...

So what do you actually take pictures of then?

If you use a digital camera odds are you have 1,000s of images, of which 2-5% might make 'the grade' and get uploaded to a website like but there are so so many wasted images that with a little work could have some real value.

As such the real winner from this crazy world is my backup hard drives that I am painstakingly working my way through and editing those previously unloved images that otherwise would have never seen the light of day!

I guess the point here (if there ever was one) is exactly that. This current climate is affecting all people differently and interrupting lives to a varying degree but make no mistake, EVERYONE is effected. Finding a healthy and productive way to spend your downtime regardless of if it's in the evenings after the 9-5 or if you are furloughed with a toddler (lockdown v.1..I feel your pain) we all need to help each other and remember that we can make any situation a positive or negative experience depending on how you approach it.

Stay safe and Stay Inspired
