Since this is my favourite time of year to shoot photographs, I dusted off my holga and have begun oozing with ideas. It was also the fact that I updated my new computer with my old music collection at the weekend. Sigur Ros appeared, and once again brought me back into the state of mind I beleive I had, and lost, almost a year ago now.

Listening to Sigur Ros, carrying my cameras around with me, exploring and dreaming. Since quitting Farnham university in November 2007 I beleive I stubbornly lost touch of all photographic passion I ever had.

I don't think I will ever be able to build a career from my photography, and that is where I went wrong at Farnham. It is a hobby, a passion, and something I enjoy to escape from everyday life. Some days at college I would print ten photographs in the darkroom, and not even see the light of day.

To everybody who feels they are losing touch with such a beautiful subject, to come back to it later on is better than the feeling when you shoot your first roll of film. I feel I have created a seperate life between me now, and me in my photographs. I have captured some beautiful moments in my life, some beautiful people and hidden them away in boxes to look at when I am upset or lonely.

Thankyou everybody who has ever helped me along the way. At college, Jesse, Nat and particularly Ewen Bower who pushed me further than I ever thought I could go. He inspired me to pick up a camera and I haven't ever thanked him for that.

Heres to the future.

Hi Fay, this is Stu, from a time and an age ago! I changed my deviantart account a while back and as such lost your account name.
I remembered the last thing I saw you upload was some awesome mosaic stuff, so I've just been scouring through about 25,000 pieces with "mosaic" attached to them (think I'm exaggerating? Search "mosaic"!!) to find your page, as this is the only way I know to contact you... only to find you haven't been on here for not too far off a year :s
Anyhoo, I'm hoping you'll visit again at some point and get this message.

Do you remember a few years back we did that 80's photoshoot? Well, i got a nice shot of you having final touches done by one of the hair girls and was wondering if you'd allow me put it on my website? (own site, not deviantart)
If you could contact me through here and let me know, I would be most grateful!

I hope you're doing good and I'm really liking the stuff you have (had?) been doing with the mosaics and sculpting. Fantastic stuff! I hope you're sticking with it :)

All the best,
