As part of my consideration as to how to undertake my task I thought about whether I should take the same view, at the same time of day and with exactly the same focal length. However, after some thought I decided to be flexible in this regard, as the light changes so much in Skye and I did not want to restrict my shooting options. I also wanted to take whatever inspired me in the moment. I decided to use my iPhone to take the shots as I do not do a lot of photography in this way and I wanted to produce some informal images and be free from the photographic choices I would feel necessary if I used my trusty Nikon D810. I also thought about the output from this project and whether I should produce a collage or stitched image.
Because I was doing this task I found myself rushing outside to capture the decisive moment of changing weather – and in a week it was sun, rain, snow and wind.
The following images are the result of my Views from my Window – Seven Images in Seven Days Project:
This has been an interesting project for me whilst also providing an historical record of my first few days as a resident on the Isle of Skye. I am sure the views from my window will provide endless photographic material as the years go by. . .
