IF I’M PASSIONATE ABOUT IT, I’LL POST ABOUT IT
For me Left a Bit has always been about sharing photography that excites me and gets me thinking creatively. It’s never been a space for digging people out or taking advantage for personal gains. From the beginning I’ve had one rule for the blog:
1. If I’m passionate about it, I’ll post about it.
With that in mind, for the first post of 2019 (It’s been a slow start to the year) I want to share the work of Tori Ferenc. I’ve been aware of Tori’s photography for a while now and I can’t wait to see what she’s working on this year. If you aren’t familiar with Tori’s work, then I think you should put that right and check out:
THIS POST HAS BEEN A LONG TIME COMING
As someone who’s always on the look out for photography to share on here, I’ve got into the habit of writing scribbled notes, taking photos and screen grabbing things that catch my eye. Where this process falls down, is if I don’t follow up with the notes and reminders soon after recording them. I end up tripping across them weeks even months later and thinking, why the hell did I write/photograph/screen grab these?!?
Making an effort to wade through some of these reminders on the train journey home from work, I’ve come across countless reminders to feature Dan Wood’s series ‘Gap in the Hedge’ It’s a project I really admire and have been meaning to share for a while, so here it is:
A DOG THEMED BIRTHDAY POST FOR YOU!
Roughly this time of year for the past eight years, I’ve asked my partner Ellie what she would like for her birthday, and without hesitation she replies ‘a dog!’ We’re not really in a position to have a dog at the moment, so each and every year I have gone looking for dog themed gifts, socks, scarves, jigsaw puzzles the list goes on and on.
This year however I’ve hit a brick wall so I’ve decided to share a dog themed photography series by Alma Haser instead. Happy Birthday Ellie, fingers crossed this time next year you will have a real life dog, but for now enjoy looking at this ace series!
'TRAINSPOTTERS' BY NATHAN CUTLER
Over the last few years I’ve spent an almost depressing amount of time travelling backwards and forwards on trains. From major delays to over crowded trains, the thing that seems to stick in my mind when I arrive into yet another station is, what’s that bloke in the anorak with a camera and a thermos flask doing on the end of the platform?
Train spotting has never interested me, I left that hobby to my sister when we were little. It’s not the thing itself that intrigues me, it’s the people that do it. Fortunately I’m not the only person intrigued by this, but Nathan Cutler has gone a step further and documented these band of brothers known as trainspotters.
