So what it is going to be then? After this summer of so much sun and so much content? And a train trip from Paris to Berlin that lasted 29 hours.
The expression Stand Up And Be Counted comes to mind and I have decided to use it. You will have to do the counting and will do the standing. Means that I have made a commitment, and that is no little thing when non commitment seem so much easier to do.
I have decided that much energy over the next year must go into making a small book on Itching Images. Why and how to get them. Much along the lines of Street Photographer’s Toolbox but with a clear beginning, middle and end. A clear structure.
Nothing big size, but enough for me and hopefully many more to get a little bit brighter on what street photography can be. A small book of learning with stress on easy understanding, precise information and usefulness. A practical book with many photographs. And many practical exercises.
The project will also be the hub for The Workshop to be arranged in 2014.
It shall not be more than 100 pages long and filled with useful information on how to improve and make street photography even more interesting. You are welcome to follow the process since bits and pieces will be published on this very site.
In fact, much of the work has already been done so it is primarily a work of adding, rewriting and editing. And to find a way to publish it.
So these are the words. If you care to do the counting, I will do the standing. We can reverse the order later on.
One year from now is the deadline. Most likely it will come much faster.
Good luck with it.
