Happy new year for 2022
I’m not sure if I’ll get a chance to do any more posts this year so if not Happy New Year!
I’m going to start a new series of posts next year, but don’t want to give any spoilers away too early.
This Christmas the TMMA household has been busier than normal during the festive period but given the last couple of years there are no complaints.
Here’s a visual break, almost seasonal photo and cryptic clue to one of my favourite tipples:
As we go into 2022 we face an uncertain few weeks. There could be more lockdowns or restrictions or both. You have to wonder how long retail / hospitality etc will be able to cope with this. If you read any news articles they seem to be negative in terms of outlook. We have rising inflation in the UK and bigger energy bills looming. It would appear that incomes will be squeezed.
What effect this will have on a already contracting photo industry remains to be seen. Chip shortages are affecting not only photographic gear but seemingly anything electronic. Camera manufacturers are already shifting production to prioritise higher price equipment. I can’t really see how more expensive gear will help anybody.
We need a long term strategy for global economies and health organisations rather than bumping along from one variant to the next.
Talking of long term strategies I’m making plans to modify my photographic workflow. I’m not going to give too much away now but it will involve a total rethink on how I capture and process images.
I’m not one for making New Years resolutions. Whether your moving house, job, or making any other life changes may you realise your dreams and ambitions.
Happy New Year and best wishes for 2022.
