I have been a long term hunter of heart shapes in nature but come across good ones quite rarely. The appeal centres around chance – of finding them at all, and in the right conditions. You can’t realistically go out on a heart-hunt; you will come across them when you’re doing something else.
A great deal of my work these days leaves nothing to chance: field time is so short and so precious that I can’t risk coming back with nothing. A wander with the camera is a luxury that few professional photographers can afford now, and I suspect that our work may be diminished because of that.
