When finally put on the spot to deliver a theme all sorts of ideas race through the mind. Some ideas stay a bit longer ('motion' and 'mutual aid/cooperation') were the two runners up to my final choice. So here it is - flâneur. As some of you may know I love art, and the impressionists are a great inspiration. Caillebotte is one of my favourites, and he painted many a flâneur - the gentleman observer of life, wandering the streets without aim or direction, simply soaking up the experience. Obviously times have changed, so the need to be a gentleman is no longer valid. Putting this into a theme, what I'm looking for this month of April is for images encountered and captured whilst you have been out and about in observational mode. Not street per se, nor reportage or documentary. Simply head out (with a camera, whether phone or Phase One) and show me what caught your eye. The serendipitous, the chance encounters, the glorious light that shone for mere seconds in graceful form. Don't go out with preconceptions, or out "to shoot 'x'" - just head out and shoot what you see. It'll be a broad theme for sure, but I'm expecting magic!
