Last winter was colder than many I remember. It has been harder than ever to re-awaken this year; moving house in February made me want to hibernate even more.
My lovely friend Deyan has kicked me into gear with a photo duel, on the theme of spring: The Photo Duels
I am pushing myself to take photographs. I made myself buy a new (to me) camera; it feels like heaven to use; a tank of a thing, a 'proper' camera.

I am in charge. Any mistakes are my own. I want to move forward. Fingers crossed!

I know what you mean about the sluggishness of winter lingering...i am finding it hard but art making helps. Good for you exploring with your camera! I love my manual camera and the whole dark room experience. I don't do it any more but its very rewarding having that kind of control over your image.

This image is fabulous, so if it is one you've created with your new camera -- bravo! Actually, bravo either way, new camera or old camera.

Lovely set of photos here. This is the first time I've stumbled upon a sort of duel on a blog.

Thank you all so much!
This duel is almost at an end, but I can't wait for the next. It's taught me a lot about shooting on film. The pictures haven't always come out as I've wanted them to; then again some have been wonderful surprises!
