Hey everyone! Welcome back to Time Travel Tuesday.

All of the images this week have been from our 2008 trip to Ecuador. Orchid farms, convents, hand weavers and panama hats to name a few of the featured images. As I’ve mentioned, I am running a personal project this year, well a couple actually, but this one is all about revisiting my catalogue of images over the last 13 years or so and blogging about an individual image each day.

You can follow along and read the stories, learn about the places we’ve visited, people we’ve met and often, the techniques used to create the images. Check it out on my tumblr blog.

Hey everyone, welcome back to Time Travel Tuesday.

As you can see, here is another installation of the images I have been featuring on my tumblr blog. If this is your first time checking this out, this is a year-long project for me, each day going back through my archive of photographs and selecting images to highlight and discuss. The end result of this project will be a memory book for us.

In this week’s installment, all of the images are from an Andes tour we took in Ecuador in 2008 and features the Devil’s Nose, rose farming and Tagua Nut carving amongst other things.

As ever, I invite you to follow along on the tumblr blog and learn the story behind each of these images.

Take care!

Welcome back to Time Travel Tuesday.

I had full intentions of posting some portraits after last week’s Time Travel Tuesday poster, but life got in the way again and here we are on Time Travel Tuesday again. I hope you’re enjoying these images as much as I have been enjoying going through my archive and finding these gems to share and talk about.

This week I shared a couple images from a patterns photo walk, an Outback Rodeo and then we started into some of the photographs I created when we visited Ecuador a few years ago.

I invite you to follow my tumblr blog for a daily photo-story!

Take care and we’ll catch you on the next post!

The last 7 images in my Looking Back Series

Click to see this in all it’s full size glory!

I thought it would be kind of neat to post a collage every week of the images I have selected for my Looking Back series over the past 7 days.

To that end, here is my first “Time Travel Tuesday” post which will be a recurring weekly feature on the Houlden Studios blog.

Of course, you don’t have to wait for Tuesday to see which images I have selected over the past week. You can follow along on my tumblr blog or keep an eye on the photos and caption snippets in the sidebar of this blog. The past five days of my retrospective series are show in the sidebar. Click the date at the end of the caption snippet to go to tumblr and see the image full size and the entire text.

The stories posted along with the images are a combination of a description of where, when, what the image is about as well as, often, a discussion on what makes the photograph work compositionally or why it fails or just how it could have been stronger had I spent more time on it, or the conditions been different, or what have you.

Most of the images are being selected on their compositional merit, but here and there I am selecting an image as a conversation point or because I want to highlight a particular event or point. The end goal of this exercise will be the publishing of book of photographs at the end of the year. A personal publication to be sure – hence why some images will simply be images highlighting an event.

Anyway, I hope you’ll join me on tumblr each day or on Tuesday’s when I publish the weekly roundup here.
