First Love

No matter how much new gear I get, I always manage to go back to my first love: the Fuji XE1. You can get these for peanuts online. Colour rendition, control, toughness all second to none. With a relatively inexpensive pancake 27mm it’s the perfect go everywhere camera.


Through the woods…

Through the woods 
in late afternoon in autumn

as the colours
drain brown
stain water
humus
over broken
branches
all bark-stripped
smoothworn
they blindly rush
hoping
the leaf-slick
deer-run
leads them away
from dusk
hanging low
so soon
to the hollow
where the
flask of scotch
was hid

Some experimenting below. I thought it may be interesting to append to this post. This would be a good exercice à la Beckett to achieve that “detached” vibe in one’s writing.
