"he wrote this play years ago, and he sniggers every time i trip over my lines"  
Went to see Drawn by Light a couple of weeks ago. There's a photo, taken by someone I can't remember, of some steps, and the blurb describes how he went back to the same steps many times over many years, trying to get the right shot. And I thought, I don't have that dedication.

A few weeks before that, I'd got all excited with my camera over Tate Britain's new staircase and the connecting passageways and stairwells. The results are rather different to all of these - unintentional, but inevitable. I'm used to taking photos outside in daylight. I don't think I changed settings when I stepped through Tate's doors. Hence, they're dark. However I'm immensely proud of the quality of the framing etc; I now need to work on taking photos indoors without affecting the light quality, and then I need to go back.

This is a departure! And a good one. The way those bulbs come out, and your arrangements in general. Daylight-settings-indoors is clearly the way forward.
