Recording a Year Hamilton Waterfront and surrounding area / Hyper-local-Journalism . “Picture’s really do tell a better story than the written word.”
Doug Worrall Photography One Year Young
Last Year, after a ten year absence from Film photography, I made the leap into the digital age. The learng curve for myself, has been just that, A curve all the way through my grey matter,
down my skinny arms to my finger that releases the shutter to record a little piece of time. Owning a Computer for only four years also made this process more demanding, add more “Memory”,Hmmm, to me PC or the Brain.
The collection below is mostly from October of last year, after I began shooting in Camera Raw, to the present.
I counted the days I was able to travel around Harbourfront trail and park, Cootes Paradise, Grindstone Creek, The Royal Botanical Gardens, and the surrounding area.
Traveling approximately 95% was riding my ebike heading out the door at 5AM, hiking, biking, busing-it to each area. If I miss a day due to weather, image processing is the job that has to be done,
I have the whole year to divide into sections for people, boats, wildlife, Scenery, events etc……………………………………..
For a grand total of Two Hundred and Ninety five days out of 365. . Having four seasons sure does help in the range of photography techniques available to use.

Simply look with perceptive eyes at the world about you, and trust to your own reactions and convictions, Ask Yourself.
“Does this subject move me to feel, think and dream? Can I visualize a print-my own personal statment of what I feel and want to convey-from the subject before me.?
