in the room of my house, where the light's never been, waiting for this day to end
during the few weeks that i spent in asuncion i kind of took a break from photography. i still took the odd photo, but nowhere near the amount that i usually do, and usually not very successfully. for whatever reason i was lacking both motivation and inspiration. when i did make the effort i found it really hard to get any shots that i liked. i don't know if this means that i should keep on shooting regularly to make sure that i keep up my game, or whether a break is necessary to recharge my batteries. i guess it's open for interpretation, but i'm happy to accept that i'm gonna have bad days. i took a photo a couple of days ago for example (which internet permitting i'll put up tomorrow) that i think is one of the best i've ever taken. swings and roundabouts and all that. this photo was taken on my second trip to mercardo 4 - a huge labyrinthine market in asuncion. most of it is outside, and they stretch coloured tarpaulin from stall to stall to protect against the sun. this creates a really nice effect of colour and light underneath. my first journey there was, photographically speaking, a disaster, but i was glad that i returned and felt more satisfied after this visit.

Yep, well worth the visit - another great shot. But you should have cropped off the distracting guy on the right.

i usually prefer the more 'widescreen' looking crop - but i think you're right that guy is a bit distracting
