Notes From The Lockdown

I would be one to complain about the Covid-19 pandemic, that I am isolated, that I am not free to go out regularly, that I wear a mask, it is endless. On the other side, there are positives...I am isolated, I am not free to go out regularly, and I wear a mask. And a cool one at that. The option is available, and it is grim. So live the life.

Creatively, it is a different story. I can't go out and  photograph the empty streets without using public transit, that great air recirculator, No portraits or retro photos of snappy models, Nothing much. I have been colourising pictures of silent movie stars. Th reason is simple. Doing it is something like playing arpeggios on Photoshop. The doll shots are random, and more are on the way. Hang in there folks. Things will get better.
