Browsing through my archive, revealed me a few image of poles which I am posting today. One thing I have done extensively through the last year, is tagging my images with as many keywords as I can think of. It’s something that I find quite boring, especially when I bring home a large number of images, but its a process I consider absolutely vital in order to be able to retrieve groups of images easily at the future. I constantly got back to random dates and if I find a poorly tagged image, I will add the necessary keywords. Also, when I shoot film, I write down every piece of info I can, in order to create EXIF like info. With film, this is even more crucial, since it helps you find the correct settings for different emulsion (like overexposure for example, or how to rate ISO manually).
By keeping a properly organized archive, it’s easy to find exactly what I am looking for among thousands of photos. So, when I stumbled upon the image below, by searching for the “poles” keyword, I was able to retrieve a few more photos of the same subject.
(Sony NEX 5, 16mm f/2.8 lens, panoramic mode, the distortion created from the panoramic sweep created this bend looking pole)
