I wanted to post something a little different on my blog, something a little more personal with more of an insight into another of my rarely mentioned interests, this being photography.
Although I have to admit I haven’t really taken my camera out for a walk in while. Only to take quick snap shots of outfits or beauty products for posts. This post however has inspired me to start snapping away at things again and possibly posting them on here.
I got the “photo within a photo” idea when I came across dearphotograph.com. A site filled with tons of people doing exactly the same style snap shots. These photographs are only handful of what I produced for my parent’s anniversary, featuring my mum and both my brothers. My dad takes the photos and the ones with me in are less "spot on" with the angle. But anyway, I wanted to do something creative and personal so when I came across this site it fitted in pretty well.
I rummaged around in my parents attic stumbling across photographs from way back before my mum and dad become parents or were even married. Thankfully my dad likes to be well organised and therefor it didn’t take me long to stumble across the box filled with packs upon packs of labelled envelopes containing just what I needed (the photographs obviously).
It was really interesting trying to find the exact spot and angle where whoever had taken the photograph. “Whoever” most likely would have been my dad as he liked to capture everything and still does!
I’d really recommend doing your own collection of a “photo within a photo” as it’s a great way to explore old places, memories and end up with your own personal collaboration of old and new photos. If you do or already have done please send me your links!
