I’m a change junkie. It’s one of the things that defines me as a TCK- a Third Culture Kid. I have about a six-week window before I start to get bored. It’s true of most things in my life. New places keep me interested for about six weeks. I can handle one task in my job if it’s a big project for about six weeks. Even my writing, once a project stretches beyond the six week mark, will generally start to flag on my interest-meter. It’s one of the many ups and downs of growing up internationally.
I just gotta make sure I don’t let that roll over into my relationships…
All that to say, you’ll notice that my photos, my accounts and my general focus within the confines of this webpage flits about like a blowfly at a buffet lunch. I’ve got quite a few years’ worth of travel and experiences to share here, and, well, if I go by chronology or theme, I know I’ll get bored, and chances are, you will too. So I hope you enjoy the ride.
This shot is an oldie, and pretty out of sorts for me, in that I don’t usually do surreal things with post-processing. However I took this shot of a bottle of Sprite early one morning sometime around Christmas 2005 in the little desert town of Agadez, a couple of hours south of the Algerian border in Niger. Then I stuffed around with hues, and with the bold blues and greens, shifting the hues from one extreme to another produced the above series of colourful shots which, when stacked together, appealed to me.
This one for the sheer joy of visual creation.
Where to next I wonder…?
