This project is emphatically not about documenting the Thames Path. I 'use' hiking as a means to find images that inspire and enthuse me with the prospect of a fine photograph. Whether or not a finished photograph identifies the Thames or the Path is immaterial to me. The only connection between the images will be their proximity to the Thames, and me - the photographer.
And why this blog? A question I've asked myself the last couple of photo-hiking projects. And the answer's the same ... the discipline and commitment to publish an entry for each day's hike is motivating as is the steady build of a body of work. It would be easy to do it off line but the added edge of being public is ... compelling.
Over the last two or three years I've veered away from monochrome image-making into the world of colour. But now I've got over that I'm back to producing (most of) my finished photographs in monochrome.
