After the disastrous 3.6.1 WordPress update which crashed my site and then deleted all my photos, I have decided to rebuild my blog. I’m not the happiest of bunnies with this decision, but I have been getting rather bitter about losing all my hard work – so, time to start afresh. Luckily, the one thing I have managed to salvage from the wreckage was my site name.
Cloudy Images is taking a new direction – just two main themes flowing through each of the entries:
A week in Photos – Each week I will upload any interesting photos I have taking during my wanderings. These could be of anything that took my fancy and have no real theme
Street Cats – this is an ongoing project I started ages ago. I love cats and they make excellent photography subjects. I have hundreds of photos of my own two, Skippy & Magic, but this project is based around those cats that own the streets. Surveying their kingdoms from window ledges, prowling their territory or simply basking in the sun. Hopefully I can capture their characters, portray their cute and wild sides and generally have fun capturing the life of the average moggie.
I aim to simply use two cameras - a Leica iiif/Elmar 2.8 and a Leica M3/Voightlander Nokton 1.5. All photos will be home developed in either Diafine or Rodinal and shot on mainly Fomapan or Ilford films. Hopefully this blog will be as much fun for you to follow as it is for me to shoot.
