Critic or constructive criticism, it’s a difficult balance.

Today it’s Wednesday & it’s still sunny! When is the rain going to come? As I mentioned a little while back I was playing with my camera and would share some photos with you. Quito is always really easy to photograph, he is a lovely colour with an amazing expression in his face and so much presence.

Ziezu never keeps her tongue in place which is part of her personality and we love her for it – even though for competition purposes she wouldn’t be great because of it, she’s perfect for us. I really love her work ethic and kind personality, it’s not so easy to come by.

Then we have Danza, with Debbie riding. In some ways I really love this photo and in others I hate it; I will explain why! Pros: She has a lovely hindleg, it’s really underneath her, she is fairly uphill and not behind the vertical, it’s almost a bit mystical. Cons: the light is not great, the picture is blurry, I have a strange set of light coming in through the open wall creating a bad shape which goes through Danza, splitting her almost in half & it’s not clear enough.

But I still like it -with all it’s imperfections!

I need to teach myself to be able to criticise me and my work but still allow myself to appreciate the good parts of it at the same time, which I find really hard. I only do photography as a hobby because it is something I really quite enjoy doing, but I still am really hard on myself. I would really love to learn how to properly use the camera and how to work in lightroom/photoshop and such thing’s – one day maybe.

It’s the same in all aspects of my life, even though I choose to be almost a little impersonal it’s a start to open up and it can only get better by practicing.

I hope you’re enjoying the week so far.

Take Care
