There’s a line in Pitch Perfect 2 where Beca, in a phone message to her boyfriend, says, “So you may not be able to hear this message because apparently I have nothing to say. Which is music speak for “I suck.”
So, in writing and photography terms you may not be able to read this post because apparently I have nothing to say. Which is writing speak for ‘I suck’.
I often get inspiration for an Instagram picture, a blog post, or a section of my book, as I’m walking around the field. It might be the particular colour of the sycamore leaf bud or a smell, or a reminder of what is to come later in the year. I can see in my mind how I want my photograph to look – I often sketch it out on the notes function of my phone so I don’t forget it. Or I write it hastily in the notes function. Sometimes, if my hands are mucky, I speak it using the speech recognition thingy.
