don’t forget the sun

hello, my name is kochy.

i have lived in bristol, uk, since 1998 and took up photography in 2005.

for better or for worse i am self-taught. through this general ignorance, the only rules i have to follow are that there are none. easy!

perhaps i try to combine my own inspiration, emotion and imagination to explore our bitter-sweet man-altered world, and bring some meaning to mine.

or maybe i just love to listen to music and walk; the universe and camera combine to do most of the work for me.

our streets are a living, evolving system. there is energy and flow. we are surrounded by everyday miracles of circumstance and invention. independent spirit still exists….

i wonder what bristol’s streets will look like in years to come? how will we think back and remember yesterday? how will we shape tomorrow, today?

still – i find taking photos a meditative and grounding experience. affirming that life – and hope – does indeed exist, feels good. if not hope, then what?

yes, bristol is my home.  in time i wish to explore her head-to-toe. learn of her, appreciate her and tell her story as best i can. it starts each day, my next lesson.

and let’s hope we are all quick learners. consumption is all consuming and soon there’ll be nothing left. we must return to the source.

and so we look to the sun. shedding light; offering colour and contrast; bringing life; and, for now, hope. waking us and giving us another day.

 

thanks for taking the time to look at don’t forget the sun. please return again or subscribe if you’d like to be informed when i next post.

your thoughts and feeback are always very welcome.
