When I first came onto this site I had a problem. My problem was that I had run out of motivation for my photography. I wasn't sure why I was doing it. "What was the point". I needed inspiration. I knew I was not alone in feeling this and hoped that I might get some inspiration from \people on here.

I did get inspiration from going on ePhotozine, but I got much more. I got positive feedback. I got to meet a lot of pleasant and informed people. I got to see a lot of images that sparked ideas for me.

The outcome of all of this is that I now have a project management plan with a full blown Gantt chart of how I am going to get these done. It sounds a bit technical and overblown, but I am the sort who likes the planning as much as the doing. If I am totally honest it is a good job that I like the planning, because without it I would never actually get round to doing anything.

Stage one of this is now well under way. One project that I set myself was to set up a website which could be the place where I put a series of projects around Photo Walks. The idea is that I have a series of walks with my camera. On each walk I would take a number of photographs and then process them when i get back home. Some of this will be tidying up the scene, but I plan to make a range of images that are based on the walk, but which are digitally manipulated to show something of the emotion of the walk - what it felt like as well as just what it looked like. I also plan to include some background to the walk. I am not talking about a route map, in the style of Wainwright's Lakeland Walks, so much as some research into the reason why I went on the walk and what attracted me to it.

I am looking forward to this project and have added one walk to the website to show what it would look like. I will also be adding a couple more over the coming week or so, but I would really welcome your comments before I go too far. There is a contact page on the website for this purpose.

My first Photo Walk is around Cosmeston Country Park and Medieval village. Here is a taster......

Thanks in advance to all those who visit the site and who let me have some feedback. Grin

It's a great feeling when you finally get out of the doldrums and get going again. I like the sound of your project. I've always found that thinking of a theme for a project is the most difficult thing. Once you've decided it's all systems Go. Best of luck. I'll have a look around.
