I’m sorry I’ve been a lax blogger. Will you still be my friend?
I moved country a few weeks ago. Northern Ireland is slowly infiltrating my mindset again.
I’m thinking about how I translate my experiences in the city (Glasgow) to my current reality in the countryside (with my parents).
I feel like I’ve been in a very dry season creatively.
Moving to Glasgow unstopped something in me.
Moving back, the challenge is to not let that blockage happen again.
I keep coming back to something Blaine (I think?) said: What am I creating that’s just for me?
In that vein, I’ve been redecorating my bedroom.
I’m living in what was my youngest brothers bedroom, and the redecoration process has actually been so good for my soul.
There’s something so beautiful about having a blank canvas.
What do you see?
Here are some other things inspiring me in this season, in no particular order…
Had the privilege of shooting at the Obel Tower in Belfast on Thursday, where Bluestone Film were shooting a promotional piece for the Electrical Training Trust. When completed, the Obel Tower will be the tallest building in Ireland, standing just over 85m high. The light was beautiful early in the morning, and I captured a few shots over the city.
Well, not really lyrics, because I can’t find them online. But I am loving this song lately – Rend Collective Experiment are rocking my world. Love the feel of the video as well, really nicely made film!
I know I’ve been terribly lax in filling you all in on the details of my move back to Northern Ireland – please forgive me! Over the last few months I’ve been dialoguing with Rob Bryce about finding a way to work together under the auspices of his film production company, Blue Stone Film, where I’ll get a chance to use my photography & social media skills. We’re still figuring it all out, but suffice to say I am loving it so far!
It’s coming together slowly, but I moved back last week and jumped straight into work! We were involved in a shoot for AB Distributors last week, who held a very swanky event for their clients at the Baby Grand in Belfast. With the aid of a little drama and a lot of humour, AB Distributors joined their clients in looking at best practices and how to show off their excellent products.
