I have finally begun work on that Genova book I've been working on for years ... but with a plan. And with deadlines.
I am a photographer and a writer but I am not gifted in the area of organising something as complex as this book I've been circling.
A good friend of mine came to stay at the weekend ... Sunday morning, Leah sat me down, and made me stay there. She questioned me, regarding my idea of the book, and then guided me through the next few weeks. When she left, I had a folder containing a schedule and a plan for the book.
Of course ... being me I have already side-tracked a little, as I search through the thousands of photographs I have taken of Genova, I'm realising just how many images I haven't quite taken through the digital equivalent of the darkroom process.
I don't do much to them, most of the time, but I do like to go over each image.
And so I am discovering that, back in September last year, I went wandering after the rain and found the image there at the top of this post.
And there was this .. just patiently waiting from that time I was down in Porto Antico and the light was exquisite.
