Well I spent my first week on sabbatical in bed with the flu – as you can imagine it was not exactly what I had in mind!

However, I thought, why not make use of my “down” time, to organize the  images that I shot and processed using my camera phone and Instagram in past 6 months. After selecting my favorites and printing them (yes, I printed them!) in order to decide how to sequence them, I knew that they had to be shown as diptychs. (Perhaps if you attended Photoshop World in the spring, you might remember some of the early images that I showed on the Art of Digital Photography panel.)

What I should have known, was that Kush (being the phenomenally efficient man that he is), posted the slideshow for me on Adobe TV on Monday but remember, I am on sabbatical, with the flu, and I have to admit that I wasn’t really paying attention. So you can imagine what a surprise it was to me when I clicked the link tonight and saw that there were already people viewing it! Shame on me for not paying attention because, this is not a tutorial –  “The Red Thread – Moments Alone” is simply a slideshow of my work. Sorry that I didn’t warn you earlier, but I hope that you will enjoy it for what it is.

    This is a wonderful slideshow. It speaks to what a special photographer (and teacher) you are. You’re a true inspiration. Thank you and be well soon.

    That was truly wonderful & inspiring! I’m going to go play it again!

    ps…is it always raining when you’re on a plane? 😉

    Not sure why you think it’s not a tutorial, but thanks!

    I’m glad to report the not only was the project fun, but it really made me looking at things more closely. And when you look closely, it’s amazing what you see that you might have otherwise missed.
    I would encourage everyone to shoot more often. It exercises your creative muscles and makes you think about light, content and making the usual, visually interesting…
