I was planning on blogging quite a bit more over the last few days, but the people at Adobe thought it was a good idea to cut my access to the Creative Cloud software (Photoshop, Lightroom etc.) because they had an issue with their system – it took 15 days to get it solved and only after really pushing on Twitter! I always knew there was a downside to not actually owning the software and everything being in the cloud.
On to more fun things… This shot is one of my favourite images I made while walking the streets of Astana (I did about 50km on foot over 3 days!) and it depicts the Kazakh Eli monument, a 91 meter tall structure which marks the year Kazakhstan became independent (1991). I shot quite a bit of architecture imagery while in Astana, working on the beginnings of an idea about a series of images. I’m still going through the results and I’m hoping things will gel together (both in my head and on the computer screen).
