I don't often shoot black and white images, but I've been more interested in them recently. I tend to go through phases with the way I post-process photographs and at the moment I think I'm chasing a "fine art" aesthetic inspired by the still life...

I always wish I had more time to do the things I love, and I'm sure that I'm not alone. It can be easy as a hobbyist to suddenly realise that you've not picked up your camera for a few weeks, let alone shot anything...
