Tommy Wilkinson’s 15 favourite images
I was always fairly good at maths; I even took it for A levels before I decided that formal Education was a waste of time. Yet, when I attempted to calculate how many photos I’ve taken in the last 5 years my grey matter got stuck on the wrong side of the bulk head and rapidly overflowed to the point where I sank. I simply have no idea, other than it’s a huge amount. In this era of big tech I can tell you it’s over 40 tb of images that I have stored on hard drives.
This makes choosing 15 incredibly tricky, and more of a fluid process that will ebb and flow as my mood changes. Right now, the 15 I’ve chose say something to me, but in a year, they may not. Such is the life of a photograph and its balance between persuasive, or indifferent nature that lies with the viewer. But the viewer is not the aim here – it’s what I like, and that’s a huge reason why photography is a personal endeavour.
Not all of these are biking related. Bikes play a huge part in my life, and have done for 20 years now. Yet I’m a human, and I love many different aspects of life. This smorgasbord of emotions, places and experiences that we are gifted is something I try to make the most of, and seeing how others live their lives around their own interests me. I also think it’s hugely important as to how we interpret life and empathise with others.
So, without furtherado, I’ll get my big ginger bonce off my hobby horse and here you are.
