Photo of the Day: Tuesday 10th December.
Hana Art paper.
What’s your rock-star name? (Middle name + name of street you grew up on.) (asked by wetcasements)
Grazyna Charles. My grandmother’s name was Grazyna - I guess the best way to describe how you pronounce it is Grah-zhee-na, though the y sound is more of the o in the plural women.
What’s your thought process like for choosing your photo of the day? (asked by gotosupermarket)
I am always on the lookout for things to photograph and have been since I was a teenager, but since having a smartphone I take a hell of a lot more photos. It’s just a lot easier to do these days. On the days that I take a lot of photos, I just choose the one I like the most, and on the days where I have got in late and realised I haven’t taken a single photo, I photograph something in my apartment that is either close by, looks pretty or is easy to photograph. Or possibly something that catches my eye outside my window.
I have occasionally posted after midnight, but I haven’t ever cheated and used a photo from another day (even if this means that the photo I end up posting is ostensibly worse than one I could have chosen from a previous day.) I am also very proud of the fact that in the nearly two years I have been posting a photo of the day, I have only missed one day and that was in September when I was on the Trans-Mongolian from Ulan Bator to Beijing for 27 hours. And I still took a photo that day, just posted it as soon as I could the next day.
