A waiting game

Third year seems to be taking it's toll. I'm in desperate need of making some new images, but everything seems to be stopping me...I'm waiting for my film to arrive and in the mean time trying to seek out the best interiors for my final major project. And to throw a spanner in the works, there's the added bombshell of a darkroom refurb a month before our deadline. But on the bright side I am feeling inspired and raring to go for my final major project, WHEN my film arrives!

I took this in Berlin during my inter-railing trip in summer 2010.

Portrait in Skopje

As you all know I'm partial to a bit of street photography, initially being inspired by the likes of Walker Evans, I've learned that it's sometimes the 'decisive moment' to take the image that is just as important than the actual photograph itself. In this case, I am definitely thankful I grasped that moment because it's turned out to be a really strong portrait. So, dear readers and fellow photographers, remember to always keep your eyes peeled and your finger on the trigger, because you never know when you'll have your 'decisive moment'.

Valentines Day: Lands End

Faithful readers, I wish you all a very happy Valentines day.

I guess a part of me is sorry I haven't presented you with a 'pretty' cliched image, but then the other part isn't. After all maybe this is a more realistic representation. So which ever path you take, I bid you a happy one, may it be with the right one. 

With all my love.

Your own space.

Don't be afraid to make your space your own. It's what makes it. 

I don't think my images really do this room or the owner justice, maybe thats why I've put off posting it till now. But I am enjoying the graininess of the negative and maybe one day I'll be able to re-shoot it; and magically capture the wonderfulness of the inhabitant and the space she's created.
