In January contributors are encouraged to reflect: to look back; and, to look within. To do some navel gazing.
Over the time since you commenced blogging, how has your photography changed? In this first of four festivals planned for 2013, you are asked to contribute two (2) photographs: a 'then', and a 'now'.
There may be lots of ways in which you have changed, choose the one change that has brought YOU the most personal pleasure, eg you may have started always stuffing up low-light shots, but now you have them nearly every time. Show us one of each, remembering to tell us the date and properties of each (if you shoot Auto, just say Auto). In addition to this photographic data, contribute no more than 100 words of text about the change you have noticed.
The 'Festival of the Belly Button' requires some reflective introspection. You might be most pleased with your transition from the landscape 'snap' to the detailed compositon. Your biggest thrill might be the realisation that a 'good' B&W shot is not just a coloured snap processed in monochrome. Note: the two shots do NOT have to be of the same location or event.
No matter how you reflect upon the changes over time in your photography, show us a 'before' shot and an 'after' shot, together with the properties of each where possible.
The Linky for the Festival of the Belly Button will open at 8pm (Sydney time, which is GMT+11 at the moment) Sunday 13th January, and close at 8pm on Friday 18th January.
