Push The Button. by Simeon Smith

Push the button. 

Push it out of sheer joy. 

Push it because you might catch the moment. 

Push it because you might not. 

Push the button. 

Push it out creative impulse. 

Push it out of boredom. 

Push it just to hear the familiar sound of the shutter firing. 

Push the button. 

Capture your brightest hopes and darkest fears.

Capture your friends and your frenemies.

Capture your home town and your destination. 

Capture the journey. 

Capture things you can’t remember when you look back at the images. 

Capture things you can’t make out when you look back at the images.

Capture things you thought were interesting, but aren’t. 

Capture things you weren’t sure why you were capturing, but now can see clearly. 

Focus. 

Focus on what’s important. 

Focus on what isn’t important, because what’s important is too much to bear. 

Focus on the detail and on the bigger picture. 

Focus on the foreground and the scenery. 

Focus past infinity.

Captain Cat and The Sailors by Simeon Smith

Some of you might know I play in a folk band called Captain Cat and the Sailors

We had a private gig on Friday, there was hog roast (aka, vegetarian stuffing and apple sauce in a bun for me), and we sat around outside after the soundcheck. I got my medium format Belair camera out, and shot some film at 6x9. The low light and good vibes made for some lovely grainy portraits.
