An HDR Vertorama
French Journal Day 113 (Travel Diary Day 193)
Today marks the end of my daily travel journal and HDR photo. I’ll still have a travel journal. I plan for it to be a big part of our lives as we continue our journey. I’m taking a step back from writing it every day, however.
I wrote a couple of months ago that I had planned to stop doing daily HDR photos. I didn’t think the pressure of producing daily photos was conducive to good quality images. In the end, I’d simply be publishing pictures that weren’t up to scratch.
With the terrible weather we’ve experienced for the last 4 weeks, I haven’t had a chance to get out and really take photos. We are lacking in daily adventures right now. As with my daily photos, I don’t want to write something that won’t interest my readers.
So where does all of this leave my journal?
When I was younger my football manager used to remind us that we’re only as good as our last game. It doesn’t matter what you did in the past, it’s the last thing you did that counts. While this isn’t exactly true, it’s a philosophy I’d like to hold on my journal.
What it comes down to is that writing and photography are both art forms. They should be a reflection of many things but rarely constrained by deadlines and timescales.
With that in mind, I plan to publish images and journal entries when I think my material is good enough. There’s no set routine. With an optimistic mindset, I hope to update a few times a week. I imagine that as soon as we begin our European adventure, I’ll have a lot to yabber on about.
I hope you pop over regularly to see how things are going!
Today’s Photo – Another Vertorama
This is the night time verto at Vezelay abbey – a lovely place to be for some peace and quiet.
Until next time…
